Lot Description
1936-S 10C MS68 Full Bands PCGS. CAC. Ex: Tom Mershon Collection. The 1936-S is a popular issue, with a mintage of just over 9.2 million pieces. The combined certified population shows far more Full Bands coins than not, and even at the MS67 Full Bands level, the date is more properly termed scarce than rare. One grade point higher and the story is different: there are just two MS68 Full Bands coins known to PCGS and none finer (12/11). This is one of them, well-defined and impressively lustrous. The centers are mostly medium-silver, while the margins show dappled violet-gray, rose, and gold color with a streak of yellow at the bottom of Liberty's bust.
