The progress and history of the people in the new world are presented on the commemorative coins of the United States. The minting and collecting of commemorative coins goes all the way back to early Greece.
The Early U.S. Silver Commemorative series covers the various commemorative half dollars, the Lafayette Dollar, and the Isabella Quarter – all made from 1892 to 1954.
An Early Silver Commemorative set is extremely interesting and although a few rarities exist, the bulk of the collection is incredibly inexpensive!
Vibrant cream-white luster and a sharp strike. Pleasing for the grade.
Vibrant luster off mostly white surfaces that have a faint golden hue. Minimal marks and high-end for the grade.
An amazing example of the only dollar denomination commemorative until modern commemoratives began in the 1980's. This coin displays vibrant crisp white luster unlike what we've ever seen on a Lafayette in this high of grade. The strike is very sharp and the satiny surfaces are devoid of significant marks. A rare opportunity to acquire a crisp white example of this scarce coin that almost always exhibits heavy toning.
Strong white luster with light gold tints. Nearly mark-free and very attractive.
Just over 50,000 coins minted but it is estimated that less than 5,000 coins sold to collectors and the rest were dumped into circulation. Nice coins are scarce and a Superb Gem, like we have here, is truly rare. This example is gorgeous with beautiful original surfaces that show vibrant, brilliant mint luster with a touch of toning mainly at the rim. The strike is even and sharp on both sides and there are simply no significant marks. A great Maine, waiting to take its place in a top flight collection.
