1936 Gettysburg Commemorative Half Dollar, Original 1960's Toned AU/Unc

429.00

Out of an old collection, this has been held in the envelope shown since 1962 – I know that as this and a number of other Commem Halves had the date of acquisition written on the envelope. 55+ years in a manila coin envelope has moderately toned the coin in a reddish-gray hue. The center of the Reverse is a bit darker and more solidly toned, setting off the two shields in sort of a “cameo effect”. No sign of circulation, however the toning makes it slightly tough to assign a specific grade – as the coin shows some very light signs of handling and you could claim some “rub” from the long slumber in the envelope, I will simply call it AU/Unc and leave it at that (as there is little "spread" in values for this coin). The original envelope is included with this lot.
