 U.S. 1892 & 1893 Silver Half Dollars

 

Fantastic quality condition yet, over 100 years old!

 

With the Christopher Columbus obverse and the famous ship, the Santa Maria, on the reverse.  This was the first U.S. commemorative coins struck by the United States, 100 years after the first mint was establish in 1792 and 400 years after Columbus' maiden voyage.  Although a true pioneer and discoverer, Columbus was very much a product of his prejudicial times, and many historians agree that he and his men mistreated Indian populations in order to get their gold.  A controversial and historical coin, Congress authorized the mintage  in 1892 to help fund the Columbian Exposition in Chicago. It was only struck in 1892 and 1893, when the world's fair opening was delayed. Only 950,000 were struck in 1892 and 1,550,405 were struck in 1893.  Many of these were heavily circulated and substantial quantities are believed to have been melted in later years to be restruck as regular circulating half dollars.  Seldom seen in  attractive Almost Uncirculated or nicer condition, we have been hoarding some of  the more beautiful examples for years and now can offer a very special deal:  Limit:  20 of each date per customer.  Seldom offered nicer.

About Scans

We can email scans only if the value is $5,000 or more, but we recommend that you always view the coins in person, using our 14 day return privilege.    Scans, no matter how good, can never fully recreate the actual three-dimensional qualities of a coin.  Also, due to time constraints, it would be impossible to scan each and every coin that comes in and out of inventory each day.  Regarding our own experience with scanned photos on eBay and other auction sites, we have had to return too many over-graded but "well-scanned" coins, and have heard too many similar horror stories from our customers.  The simple fact is that a scan can never capture accurately the three-dimensional qualities of a coins strike, luster and toning.  If this weren't bad enough, many sellers tend to manipulate the luster, toning, and even the sharpness of a coin through their scanning programs.  We both lose if we over grade a coin, and that's the last thing we want. Long before the advent of "photo scans" we bought and sold coins the good old fashioned way: Properly graded with a full 14 day, no-questions-asked return privilege.  Today, this time-tested tradition continues.  Our satisfaction rate has remained over 99% since 1979. We want you to be happy, tell your friends, and make them happy too.  This is how we have built our business of more than 65,000 satisfied customers worldwide over the past 28 years, and we hope to add you to our growing number of repeat customers.
