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!
Even gun metal gray.
A beautiful Gem with rich mint luster that displays a pleasing champagne-gold tone.

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.
Well struck with crisp mint luster and nice iridescent toning on the obverse and a brilliant reverse.

CAC approved. Sharply struck with brilliant mint luster with a subtle champagne hue and a touch of russet toning at the rim. Outstanding quality!

CAC. Well struck with an amazing patina of thick, pasty white luster. There are Grants that have merited a higher technical grade, but from a pure eye appeal perspective; this is the neatest example we've ever handled!
