Early Commemoratives
Early Commems 25C 1893 1893
Choice $495 Isabella Commemorative, Steely Frosty Luster, Swirling Cartwheels, Eye Appeal of Higher Grade. The 1893 Isabella commemorative quarter dollars received virtually no attention from the public and were lost in the shadow of the Columbian half dollar release at the World’s Columbian Exposition. The is speculation that the $1 release price was too inexpensively when the Columbian half dollar was similarly priced and provided more bullion content. This lovely survivor showcases eye appeal of a higher grade. Steely frosted luster and vibrant cartwheel need little angled lighting to be appreciated. The obverse blue-gray patina contains some embedded rose while the reverse is mostly light rose-gold with peripheral blues from the obverse. Some well hidden hairlines in the left obverse field account for the certified grade. Housed in PCGS Gen 4.4 (2005-2011) holder.
Early Commems 50C 1892 1892
Gem $325 Columbian Exposition, Multi-Color Toning, Typical Frosted Luster, Swirling Cartwheels. The Columbian Exposition half dollar remains as one of the most popular U.S. early commemoratives as the first true commemorative struck at the Philadelphia Mint during 1892 and 1893. 950,000 1892 dated pieces were struck with survivors found in a wide range of conditions. This well preserved survivor exhibits frosted luster and intermixed coloration. The obverse is mostly pastel blue, light green, and rose while the reverse has all rainbow shades. Under angled lighting, the cartwheels are vibrant and pleasing. Eye appeal and originality should be readily evidence from the GFRC images. Housed in new large font NGC holder.
Early Commems 50C 1923S 1923-S
Choice $135 Monroe Doctrine Centennial, Obverse Rainbow Toning, Frosted Luster. An inexpensive early commemorative offering that offers considerable eye appeal. This Monroe commemorative appears to have sat in an old sulphur paper album and acquiring peripheral rainbow toning. GFRC images accurate capture the coloration. Housed in new large font NGC holder.
Early Commems 50C 1952 1952
Choice $45 Washington-Carver Commemorative, Golden Rose-Blue Colors, Brilliant Frosted Luster. A beautifully toned Washington-Carver half that is worthy of a small premium. Brilliant frosted luster amplifies the natural toning. Some wispy obverse hairlines, under 10x loupe, account for the certified grade. Housed in newer NGC holder with edge view insert.
