1936 50C Elgin MS66 NGC. A pale golden cast graces this delightful Premium Gem half dollar, celebrating the centennial of Elgin, Illinois, with a Pioneer theme. Satiny luster percolates through the toning, delivering a degree of eye-appeal that should appeal to those who appreciate originality. The issue was apparently well-saved by collectors. Examples are frequently available in MS66, though finer coins are very scarce. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
