Lot Description
1936 50C Lynchburg MS68 NGC. The Lynchburg halves, limited to 20,000 pieces plus 13 assay coins, found widespread distribution. No sizeable hoards ever materialized, and today even Gem examples are elusive. Soft gold and sky-blue patina envelops most of the shining surfaces of this amazingly well preserved piece, though small slivers of brilliance peek through on the reverse. NGC has certified just five Lynchburg halves at MS68, while PCGS has graded none any finer than MS67 (11/07).
