Description & Analysis

Not since the wartime year of 1917 had so many half dollars been coined, and this was a sign of increased economic activity following the grim years of 1930-33. Well struck examples of the 1936(P) half dollar are readily available, as are gems through the grade of MS-66. Coins grading higher are in lesser supply, but enough have been certified to satisfy the demand from advanced collectors.

There are several doubled-die obverse varieties for this issue, but the only one that brings a premium is FS-101 (DDO-003). This is easily spotted by the broad vertical separation of the two date images.
