David Hall: There were 10,000 1935 Philadelphia Mint Boone half dollars minted, almost exactly the same number as the 1934 Philadelphia. The `1935 "small 34" variety also has a mintage of about 10,000 coins, the 1936 Philadelphia has a mintage of 12,012 coins and the 1937 Philadelphia has a mintage of 9,810. All other Boones have mintages of much less, from 2,003 to 5,006 per issue. The 1935 Philadelphia is obviously one of the more common Boones. Most examples grade MS63 to MS66 and it is one of the easiest Boones to find in superb condition. Most examples have frosty white luster and typically good eye appeal.
