Gettysburg Half Dollar - 1936 Gettysburg 50C PCGS MS64 CAC. This white 1936 Gettysburg Commemorative Half Dollar shimmers with bright mint luster. A few speckles of toning are seen on the obverse, less so on the reverse. There are a couple of tiny ticks on the cheeks of the soldiers and the shields on the reverse, in keeping with the grade, which is confirmed by CAC. The strike is sharp on both sides.
The actual reunion that this half dollar commemorates took place in 1938. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was among those who attended. At the ceremony Roosevelt dedicated the Eternal Light Peace Memorial. Among many other souvenirs, these commemorative halves were on sale there for $1.65. Later when the American Legion received distribution rights, they raised the price to $2.65, hoping that the increase would make people think that buying the coin would be a good investment.
