1936 50C Boone -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. The bicentennial of the birth of fabled American pioneer Daniel Boone was celebrated through the issuance of commemorative half dollars. Boone was born in 1734, so 1934 represents the actual anniversary, but production continued through 1938. Coins struck from 1935 through the final year of the series feature "1934 / PIONEER YEAR" in the right reverse field. Satiny silver surfaces are moderately subdued. However, the cleaning is not overly distracting. The strike is strong, and scattered ticks are mostly visible on Boone's portrait. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
