Lot Description
1936 50C Gettysburg MS68 NGC. This 1936 design from the heyday of classic silver commemoratives acknowledges the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg on the reverse, but the obverse states the actual event celebrated, a "Blue and Gray Reunion" that brought together surviving Civil War veterans from both sides of the conflict. The Gettysburg half did not sell as well as had been hoped, and only a handful of today's survivors remain in the state of preservation available here. The obverse shows dappled silver-gray, gold-orange, and claret shadings, while the reverse exhibits similar colors in a bold tab-toning pattern. Census: 2 in 68, 0 finer (10/08).
