    Key 1935 Old Spanish Trail Half Dollar, MS68
    Tied for Finest Certified

    1935 50C Spanish Trail MS68 NGC. Acknowledged as one of the three keys to the silver commemorative half dollar set, the 1935 Old Spanish Trail half dollar boasts a tiny mintage of 10,008 pieces. The issue was carefully produced and most examples were handled with care, but the issue is particularly susceptible to handling marks because of the expansive, open fields. The present coin is an exception to the rule, as absolutely no marks are visible to the naked eye. Both sides are toned in an even mixture of lilac and rose with strong underlying mint luster. Overall visual appeal is stunning. Currently, NGC has certified six coins in MS68, with none finer; while PCGS has graded only two examples in MS68, with none finer (11/09).(Registry values: N4719)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# BYJ5, PCGS# 9376)

    Weight: 12.50 grams

    Metal: 90% Silver, 10% Copper
