Lot Description
1936-D 50C Columbia MS68 PCGS. CAC. This commemorative was sponsored by the Columbia Sesquicentennial Commission. Kevin Flynn (2008) writes that the commission's chairman, the Hon. James Hammond, wanted nationwide distribution "to keep these coins out of the hands of speculators." Deep reddish-gold and light greenish-gold toning clings to the margins of this well struck specimen. A lustrous, well preserved piece. Available with little difficulty through MS67, but elusive any finer. Population: 19 in 68, 0 finer (11/11).
