I recently started collecting coins, and I'm finding it difficult as an 18 year old attending college and lacking a job. My first two coins of significance were an AU53 1862 3-cent silver piece and an MS65 Connecticut Tercentenary Commemorative Half Dollar (both PCGS... and gifts from family). Personally, I think that the Connecticut Commemorative is stunning, and living in Connecticut (possible bias) I really wanted the coin. As a result of this, I had done months of research about this coin, and by extension I also learned about the series of commemorative (mostly) half dollars. I was at a pawn shop today and saw this coin for $40.00 and decided to buy my first coin of significance. I recalled that most commemoratives were worth about that price in XF condition (obviously excluding the 1892 Columbian and the late 40s early 50s Washington). However, I felt extremely confident, perhaps wrongly so, that this coin was severely mis-evaluated, and thus had the wrong price. So I bought it! I don't know what the EH on the bottom left reverse and the "11 17" on the bottom right obverse may mean. (I bought another 1882 Romanian coin in a holder for $2.00 and it also had the same "EH and "11 17"). If you know what this means, please teach me. After doing about two hours of research, I couldn't find much help in approximating the coin's grade myself, and I don't feel experienced or educated enough to accurately grade a coin. I also learned about the coin's extremely interesting history; it's extremely high intended mintage and still extremely high actual mintage concerned me. Eventually, I decided to try and find some-type of forum, so I found this place. I'm desperate to know what the community (whoever's willing to read this long post) thinks of this coin. I would love to hear any thoughts on the coin's grade/value, what I should do with it, and any other advice to a novice. I would appreciate it very much!
