Lot Description
1936 50C Long Island MS67+ PCGS. CAC. Although PCGS has seen 40 submissions of the Long Island half dollar in MS67 (almost certainly not all different coins), this MS67+ piece is one of only two such at that service. As such, this coin could appeal equally to a Registry Set competitor or to someone who simply enjoys the finest aesthetic quality possible. This is certainly such a coin. The centers of each side are silvery with a satiny luster, blending into glorious saffron, amber-gold, rose, and mint hues closer to the borders. Contact is simply a nonissue. Even beyond the Long Island issue, this is one of the most stunning commemorative halves of any type that we have seen in a long time.
