1928 Hawaiian Half Dollar. PCGS graded MS-65. PQ. One of the best toned, most colorful Hawaiian Half Dollars we have seen or handled. This type usually comes with a dullish, satiny luster.

This premium quality coin should set a record price for the grade (PCGS # 9309) .

1923 Monroe Doctrine Half Dollar. NGC graded MS-68. Beautifully toned in amazing sea-green pastels over frosty white surfaces. We're tempted to let the grade speak for itself, as it should, but we are so impressed with this coin that we are compelled to add just a few more words. We see lots of amazing coin, great rarities, high condition coins, etc. -- in short, we're just a little bit jaded after decades in this business. However, we still appreciate all of the coins that appear in our sales, but this is a coin that is simply off the charts. Anyone that has collected U.S. commemorative coins in top grades knows the types that are tough to find in Gem condition: coins like the Grant with Star, the Lafayette Dollar, the Sesquicentennial, and the Monroe Doctrine. Finding an MS-65 example of any of them is a real challenge; finding MS-66 and better examples is well nigh impossible. For the Monroe Doctrine, the population drops off dramatically -- check out NGC's Census: 1074 in MS-64, 213 in MS-65, 40 in MS-66, 6 in MS-67, 1 in MS-68. Since its inception, NGC has certified over 2,300 Monroe Half Dollars, but only 1 in MS-68. We cannot think of a better definition for the word "rare."
Estimated Value $12,000 - 14,000.
