Document 1-B seems really odd. It lists the activities of Vice President Johnson for March 4, 1964. If Kennedy was killed in Nov 1963, why would Johnson still be "VP" in Mar 64?

My Best guess is that LBJ had them use the old forms until the supply was exhausted. He seemed to be rather frugal he took all the silver out of coins and the mints went to clad coinage that year as well.
