This extraordinary coin offers dazzling luster and a bold strike. There simply are no marks from bag handling, and as such it has earned the coveted Superb grade level from PCGS. Furthermore this example is tied for the very finest known of the date and mint. Extraordinary quality demands a solid price, which it well deserves.<br />
<strong>Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers<br />
</strong>In recent years there has been renewed emphasis on 20th century coins after 1933, as 1934 was the first year in which investors set aside rolls in quantity. The result is that in the Walking Liberty half dollar series most dates and mintmarks are readily available. Although the 1936-S is plentiful enough in grades from MS-63 to MS-65, at the MS-67 level and with a CAC sticker, it is a true condition rarity.
