David Hall: The three 1936 Columbias have about the same relative rarity. At the highest end of the quality scale, the 1936-D is the most common in Superb Gem condition, the 1936 is the scarcest, and the 1936-S is somewhere in-between. The typical 1936-S, like the other two Columbias, has excellent mark-free and lustrous surfaces. The eye appeal of these commem issues is usually outstanding, though there are some very dark and spotted examples and those should of course be avoided.
