What about my 1964-P Kennedy Half Dollar First Day Issue?

Yeah! The 1964-D FDI Kennedy half dollars graded by NGC has a population of 2000.
My lonely 1964-P FDI Kennedy half dollar deserves to be graded and attributed as a FDI as I have a President Johnson letter! I purchased this gift set from the Congressman's estate. I also have a provenance letter (not shown) showing the full-chain of legal ownership (Congressman (estate) to DrDarryl).
1. The date on the letter is the FDI.
2. The text of the letter states "...among the first...".
3. Signature of LBJ
4. The White House stationary and envelope.
I did ask the estate why its stapled (it was to keep the coin and the letter together). I did see one other gift set, but it was gifted to a Senator (listed on WorthPoint) and the coin was not stapled to the letter.
This historic numismatic specimen has a FDI cousin. A FDI Eisenhower dollar gift set from President Nixon to the same Congressman.
