Description:
Beautifully Toned Antietam Half, MS68 PCGS
1937 50C Antietam MS68 PCGS. Struck to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Civil War Battle of Antietam, examples of this Half Dollar are a mainstay in our auctions in lower grades. However, at the MS68 level of preservation, this coin is a major numismatic rarity. Portraits of Major General George B. McClellan, commander of the Union Army of the Potomac and General Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia, adorn the obverse. The reverse depicts the bitterly contested Burnside Bridge over Antietam Creek, at which Brigadier General Robert Toombs' Brigade repulsed the Union corps of General Ambrose E. Burnside.
This is an original toned example with rich deep gold, crimson-magenta, and emerald-green colors over the obverse and around the reverse periphery. Sharply struck with not even a single distraction, the surfaces are awash in warm frosty luster. Among the several awe-inspiring Silver Commemoratives that we are offering in this sale, and a coin that is sure to inspire spirited bidding among specialists.
From the Fox Valley Coin Commemoratives. (#9229) (Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 28HV, PCGS# 9229)
