1936 50C Bridgeport MS66 NGC. The Art Deco eagle on the reverse of the Bridgeport half dollar is remarkably similar to that of the Connecticut Tercentenary half dollar of 1935, also designed by Henry Kreis. Only 25,000 pieces were sold to the public -- the minimum number authorized for production. Minimal chatter occurs over the most exposed areas, explaining the impressive Premium Gem assessment. Daubs of gold patina encircle brilliant centers. Locating a finer example will require patience. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
