Lot Description
1935 50C Hudson MS67 PCGS. Ex: JFS Collection. Accents of crimson-red, gold, and jade-green enrich the borders, while the remainder of this lustrous example is pearl-gray. The strike is crisp, although the surface of the planchet remains visible on the upper left sail. The Hudson is among the lowest mintage types, tied with the Spanish Trail and the key Hawaiian half. The fanciful obverse motif depicts Neptune riding backward on a whale, his arrival proclaimed by a conch-bearing mermaid. The reverse is more traditional, and depicts Hudson's sailing vessel, the Half Moon. Population: 6 in 67, 0 finer (6/09). Ex: FUN Signature Sale (Heritage, 1/2004), lot 2242, which realized $31,050. From The Louis Bassano Collection of U.S. Commemoratives.
