1936 Long Island Half NGC MS66 SOLD
1936 Long Island Half NGC MS66
This 1936 Long Island Tercentenary Commemorative Half Dollar has been graded MS66 by NGC. The coin is a great example for the grade and has only a few tiny hits, most of which are limited to the reverse and are well hidden by the design and toning. The coin has deep original tab toning leaving most of the obverse untoned except for a thick dark band around the rim. As with many commemoratives of the era, the Long Island Tercentenary half dollar was originally issued in a cardboard holder with a circular target-shaped cutout connected by small tabs to hold the coin in place. That holder design is what cased the highly desired "tab toning" on the obverse of this coin and is confirmation of the coin's originality. The toning is dark, but in that dark toning some nice color is present as shown in the photos. The reverse of the coin is fully toned with medium-dark color that is quite attractive, especially towards the upper-right of the coin with orange, green and blue colors above the ship. An overall pretty, high-grade example of the Long Island Commemorative Half Dollar.
