Lot Description
1936-S 50C Columbia MS68 NGC. Though the Commission of Fine Arts, perhaps reeling from the deluge of designs in 1936, panned the design for the Columbia halves, few numismatists were critical of its simple, yet effective design. The obverse of this piece has pale greenish-gold at the rims and in tiny specks at the center, while the fields are sky-blue. Slight amounts of violet and teal patina decorate the reverse periphery. NGC recognizes just six coins in MS68, while PCGS has seen only four, with none any finer at either service (3/08).
