1936 50C Albany MS66 NGC. The Albany commemorative half dollar had an authorized distribution of up to 25,000 coins plus 13 pieces for assay purposes. The issue's strictly local historical significance, celebrating the 250th anniversary of the city's charter, and its price tag of $2, inhibited strong sales. Ultimately, 17,671 Albany halves were distributed. The strike is razor-sharp throughout mainly brilliant surfaces awash in softly glowing satin luster. Areas of translucent golden patina confirm the originality of this Premium Gem. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
