Lot Description
1936 50C Albany MS68 NGC. Iridescent color in a melange of shades includes pink, gold, orange, and purple prevailing to beautiful effect on the obverse of this coin, while the reverse shows some untoned silver areas remaining, and adding mint-green and ochre to the palette. This MS68 example also boasts an excellent strike and impeccable preservation. The Albany half may have been important to the citizens of New York state, but it was one of a questionable string of commemorative half issues of the era that bore absolutely no national significance. NGC and PCGS have certified only a half-dozen examples in this top grade. Census: 5 in 68, 0 finer (3/13).
