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!

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+.
