1978 Kennedy Half Dollar, toning

The coin almost looks like it was exposed to smoke. But I'm guessing it's nice toning and the condition of the coin is nice also. Assessments? Opinions and opinions on grade. Please.

It's normal and toned from being in mint cello. I see this often in mint sets.

1978-P, are Philly coins in mint sets? Would this coin have been part of a mint set? What's mint cello?

my professional friend rated it quite high, what other coins do you have, maybe a collection?

Mint sets come in sealed mint cello packages. I recommend buying a 2022 Red Book price guide. I also recommend joining a coin club and visiting a coin show. It's worth a drive if you have to.

DANIEL. Mint cello, mint sets that I've purchased from you? With the hard plastic cover? Ok I just looked at a 79 but those are silver (color) as are the other 15 or so sets. I wish you guys would be more fourth coming with your opinions on grades but I understand why you don't. ARCHER: No, that came in a box, of half dollars, I purchased from the bank.
