1936 Lynchburg Virginia Sesquicentennial Half PCGS MS67 SOLD
1936 Lynchburg Virginia Sesquicentennial Commemorative Half Dollar PCGS MS67
The Lynchburg Sesquicentennial Half Dollar is one of the few instances where a United States coin bears the portrait of a then-living person, Carter Glass. Carter Glass, protested against the use of his portrait on the coins at the time but to no avail. John Lynch, the founder of Lynchburg, was the obvious choice for the obverse of the coin but no images of Mr. Lynch could be found. This example of the 1936 Lynchburg Commemorative Half Dollar has been graded MS67 by PCGS and is encapsulated in the newer-style edge-view holder. The coin has eye appealing streaky toning that covers the entire obverse with a mostly golden color that deepens to orange and red towards the rim and is reminiscent of a sunrise or sunset. The reverse is also lightly toned with a thin haze over the original preserved surfaces. No significant hits or marks are of note. An amazingly preserved and attractive superb gem example of this low mintage entry in the classic commemorative series.
