David Hall: The three Cincinnatis all have relatively low mintages of about 5,000 coins. Thirty years ago, this issue was considered to be rarer than it actually is. Today, we know that Cincinnatis are sort of scarce, but not that scarce. They are relatively easy to obtain in grades up to and including MS66. The 1936-D, though its mintage is basically identical to the 1936 and 1936-S, is for some reason much more populous and easier to find. The typical 1936-D Cincinnati has somewhat frosty, somewhat satiny luster and can either be satiny white in color or toned to varying degrees of attractiveness (or unattractiveness as the case may be).
