Early Commemoratives
Early Commems 50C 1927 1927
Choice $260 Vermont Sesquicentennial, Near Gem Original, Steely Cartwheels, Substantial Eye Appeal. Net distribution of 28,142 as 11,892 were melted. Struck in very high relief as compared to other early silver commemoratives. Survivors all show excellent detail but the high relief brought about friction on Ira Allen's cheek. This MS63 graded example offers exceptional steely luster and is so pleasing. Cartwheels are vibrant. Faint speckled ebony toning is concentrated at the peripheries. Near gem for the assigned grade level. Housed in PCGS Gen 6.0 holder.
Early Commems 50C 1934D 1934-D
Gem $395 Oregon Trail Commemorative, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Gem Original Surfaces, Accurately Graded. Oregon Trail commemoratives were issued from 1926 through 1939. 1934 Denver strikes have a tiny mintage of 7,006 pieces and are very difficult to locate in MS66 or better grade levels. This superb gem MS66 offers crisp frosty cartwheel luster along with transparent gold patina. Eye appeal is high and should please the most selective collector. Housed in new PCGS 30th Anniversary Old Green Holder and worth of a CAC attempt.
Early Commems 50C 1936 1936
PCGS Rattler
Norfolk Bicentennial, Faint Rose Coloring, Brilliant Frosty Luster, CAC Approval. An ornate early U.S. commemorative design that celebrates the 200th anniversary of the establishment of the Norfolk borough. A "majestic" example with hammered strike coupled with faint rose shades that have been enhanced by GFRC photography. This offering is ready as a long term "hold" given the rattler holder and CAC green bean. Mintage is only 16,936. U.S commemoratives have been underrated with this gem example being a smart value at the offer price. Housed in PCGS Gen 1.2 (1986-1989) rattler holder with CAC approval. CDN CAC guide is $375. If looking for a top shelf Norfolk Commem, this offering should work nicely.
Early Commems 50C 1937 1937
Gem $900 Antietam Civil War Battle Commemorative, Superb Gem Original, Old Mint Holder Toning, Accurately Graded. The 1937 Antietam Civil War half dollar commemorative is popular with collectors. The original mintage was 50,028 coins although 32,000 were melted as unsold. Therefore the surviving mintage distributed to collectors is only 18,028. Most surviving examples will grade in the MS63 to MS66 range. This offering is well above average with old mintage holder paper toning that is quite evident on the reverse. Frosty cartwheel luster is brilliant and swirling when viewed under a light source. A superior example that is fairly graded as MS66+ and approved by CAC. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder.
Early Commems 50C 1946 1946
Gem $295 Booker T Washington, Superb Gem Original, Rose-Gold and Aquamarine Patina, Incredible Preservation State . A magnificent 1946 Booker T. Washinton commemorative housed in pristine NGC Fatty holder to consider. A superb gem example with strictly original surfaces. Obverse is covered with rich rose-gold and aquamarine colors while the reverse glows with fiery rose-gold when any light source is added. CAC approval is icing on the cake. For collectors who desire wildly toned coins.
