    I haven't had a guess the grade in a while, so let's see what you all think about this Columbian Exposition Commemorative Half Dollar.

    I don't think you realize at 67 its around a $3000-$4000 coin ,just saying but I wouldn't be surprised if it went that high.

    Incredibly well struck. This is a jaw dropper, and I can't see it being anything but a 67

    Probably sold for $2-3K, and worth it.

    Wow, I know we're talking grade, but that toning is great.
    MS-66+ My guess

    I don't think I've ever seen a Colombian reverse struck up as well as this one. A few nicks in the hair on the obverse but nothing major. I give it a 66.

    IMO, the superb strike and eye-popping toning were enough to bypass the minor hits.

    Did the Royal Canadian Mint colorize that for you ;)

    Just kidding. One of my favorite commemorative.

    It's an early test case from the US Mint for the future of colorized coinage. :p

    And it's one of my favorite commems as well. I have four at the moment. :)

    I too haven’t seen one of these struck this well. It has to be a 67. These pieces just don’t present like this one.
