Description & Analysis

Denver mintage of half dollars rose only gradually over that of 1935, as the Midwest endured a slower recovery than did the nation as a whole. Still, this issue is readily available through the grade of MS-65, with enough MS-66 coins certified to satisfy the advanced collectors. A fair number of these have good, though not full, strikes.

The minor doubling visible on the obverse of 1936-D half dollars is the product of master die doubling and thus affects the 1936 half dollars of all three mints. There is no premium attached. There are a few obverse dies that reveal additional doubling, but this, too, is minor and of no broad interest.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
