1936 50C Lynchburg -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Artist Charles Keck, previously responsible for the 1915-S Panama-Pacific gold dollar and the 1927 Vermont half dollar, was chosen to produce designs for a new half dollar celebrating the sesquicentennial of Lynchburg, Virginia's charter. In the absence of an image of John Lynch, for whom the town was named, a profile of Virginia politician and local resident Carter Glass was used. The noted cleaning fails to detract from surfaces that have lightly retoned. Well-struck and with scattered ticks and flecks. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
