David Hall: In 1936, the original sale price was dropped to $1.60, down from the $2.00 that was charged for the 1934-D. Oregons were struck at both the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mints. The Philadelphia was struck in greater quantities, almost exactly twice as many, and it is much more common than the 1936-S. There were 10,006 1936 Philadelphia Oregons struck and sold to collectors.

Today, the 1936 Oregon is one of the more common of the 14 Oregon Trail issues. It is readily available in almost all grades, except circulated grades as it appears that none of the original mintage ever saw circulation. Most 1936 Oregons are well struck and have very frosty luster. This issue comes nice!
