David Hall:

The Connecticut half dollar was struck to commemorate the 300th anniversary (tercentenary) of the founding of the colony of Connecticut. The original mintage was 25,000 coins and they were apparently quite popular as they were widely dististributed at their original issue price of $1. Today, the Connecticut is popular with collectors as a one-year-only type coin with a fairly attractive design, and a coin which is scarce enough to be desireable but not so rare as to be overly expensive. The eagle on the reverse is the focal point for marks and abraisions, so look for Gems with good feather detail and minimum marks. Luster is usually quite frosty and of course there are toned examples of varying degrees.
