Lot Description
1936 50C Oregon MS68 PCGS. Glimpses of honey and peach-gold patina visit the upper obverse border and the lower reverse margin, while the remainder of this exquisite Superb Gem exhibits faint sky-blue and apricot-gray colors. The shimmering surfaces are remarkably undisturbed, and the strike is exceptionally sharp even on the usual problem areas, namely the back of the covered wagon and the second T in STATES. The present piece is the single highest certified 1936 Oregon Trail Half Dollar. As of (6/04), NGC has not encapsulated any pieces above the MS67 level. Population: 1 in 68, none finer (6/04). Ex: New York Signature Sale (Heritage, 7/02), lot 5086, which realized $9,775. From the JFS Collection, the #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.
