1935 Hudson Half Dollar, Nice for the the Grade – $1,050

1935 Hudson Commemorative Half Dollar, PCGS Secure Holder MS-65. Very Nice for the grade.

With a low mintage of only 10,000 pieces this is one of the premier issues of the Commemorative series, and one of the very toughest to find nice. It tends to be heavily bag marked, so there are a lot of junky ones floating around out there that barely make the grade, or worse. As you can see in the photo, this coin has very clean surfaces and eye appeal for the grade and the issue. It is white, but not dipped; just a nice original pearly patina from envelope storage.

We recently had the highly unusual opportunity to purchase about 40 commemoratives that have been off the market since the 1930’s, 1940’s and 1950’s. It pays huge dividends to have a long term positive reputation in the commemorative field since deals like this sometimes come my way as a result. The man’s deceased father started purchasing commems from original issuers in the 1930’s and continued to supplement his holdings through purchases from prominent numismatic figures such as B. Max Mehl, Abe Kossoff, Stacks and others up until the late 1950’s. Some of the coins were left in their original issue holders, and you will see them offered here shortly. Others were stored in a Wayte Raymond album, such as the amazing Bay Bridge offered elsewhere on this site, and others, such as Arkansas’s and Boones, which were stored in envelopes which imparted a warm pearly patina on the coins. These coins have been stored away, untouched and unmolested for decades, so never dipped or messed with in any way. You rarely get that opportunity any more.

This coin is from that group. It was purchased Abe Kosoff at the 1954 ANA.

Nearly all classic commems are priced at historically low levels for the past 30 years and most represent outstanding values at current prices.
