Lot Description
1936 50C Delaware MS68 NGC. CAC. Tab-toned from long residence within its originally-issued holder, this Superb Gem has rose-red, golden-brown, and apple-green shades on the obverse except for a light cream-gold area where the piece was protected from the atmosphere by a cardboard tab. The reverse displays light peripheral gold patina. NGC has graded just three examples at this level, and PCGS has graded none, with no coins finer at either service (3/08). Ex: Cary & Cheryl Porter Collection (Heritage, 5/2007), lot 2518; Good Humor Collection (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 1651, which realized $7,475.
