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!
CAC approved. Extremely well struck with lustrous surfaces and a beautiful greenish-gold patina.
Even gun metal gray.
CAC approved. Well struck and nearly mark-free with very attractive multi-colored toning.
This original Gem has the familiar 'ring toning ' at the rim from being stored in its mint issued card and has lovely light champagne toning over the entire coin. The strike is very sharp and there are very few marks.
Light gold and russet toning over crisp mint luster.
CAC stickered. Delightful lite golden tone with a multi-color periphery. Strong luster and just a tick or 2 away from the next grade.
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. Only 2 coins have graded slightly higher at PCGS - grading 67+.
With 2x2. Crisp mint luster with light russet toning.
