1936 50C Arkansas MS66+ PCGS #9237

Another pop 1 on a Secure Plus coin! This has been off the market for decades as I originally bought it in a rattler holder. Both sides are monster toned in both vibrant and deep colors. Everyone who has seen this coin in hand wants it and has made me an offer. Sorry, not for sale!

1936-S 50C Bay Bridge MS66 PCGS #9254

This is the atypical Bay Bridge that is attractively toned with a "taste" of multiple and subtle rainbow shades. It is a rainbow and looking at it is my pot of gold.

1935/34 50C Boone MS66+ PCGS #9262

Attractive gold rim toning on both sides. Sharper strike than one normally sees on this issue.

1946 50C Booker T. Washington MS67 PCGS #9404

Think of a peach melba colored B.T.W. with one of the strongest strikes on what is considered as a "weak strike issue," and you have this beauty.

1936-D 50C Cincinnati MS66 PCGS #9284

Attractive rim toning on both the obverse and reverse that hits every color of the rainbow. Unlike many Cincinnati's, this does not have the "faded silver" appearance that so many have, not from dipping but the conditions under which they were struck.

1892 50C Columbian MS66 PCGS #9296

The boldest rim toning, on both sides, that I have ever seen on this issue or many commems ever, for that matter. Pick your color because they are all available on this coin.

1936 50C Delaware MS67 PCGS #9301

My Delaware has one of the sharpest strikes that I have ever seen on a Delaware. It is "kissed" with toning on both sides of gold, green and blue.

1922 50C Grant Star MS65 PCGS #9307

One of Larry Shepherd's former finest! Rainbow rim toning on both sides of a Grant with Star is incredible to behold. Only the slightest of bag marks at 1 P.M. on the obverse, kept this from an MS67 as Larry said...and he's right. When I've shown it to professional graders at shows, their response has always been along the lines of "wow!"

1935 50C Hudson MS65 PCGS #9312

A great Hudson that is a 66 in a 65 holder. Reds, greens and blue water and a blue moon are the highlights of this classic.

1946 50C Iowa MS67 PCGS #9316

Now this is a monster rainbow! Pick your color and you will find it, frequently on both sides of this coin. On the rim of the obverse they merge into what might be considered as a psychedelic mix of colors. The strong strike, not usually found on an Iowa, is a bonus with this one.

1925 50C Lexington MS66 PCGS #9318

How many genuinely toned Lexington commems have you ever seen? This is a combo toned issue, on both sides, of blue, green and gold.

1936 50C Long Island MS66 PCGS #9322

Red, yellow, green, blue, gold and violet are the colors you will find on both sides of this coin. Thank you Warren Mills! Some of them are vibrant while others, like the green and violet, are more subtle. It has a strong strike which is the "topping off" of this coin.

1936 50C Lynchburg MS66+ PCGS #9324

One of less than a handful of Secure Plus MS66+ Lynchburgs. Streak gold and red toning predominate the obverse while gold toning dominates the reverse. Outstanding strike on an issue that usually lacks it as well.

1920 50C Maine MS66 PCGS #9326

Toned in shades of copper on both sides, my Maine is a coin that has impressed multiple dealers who have made me an offer for it when I was only showing it to them. Anyone who thinks that one color only toning isn't enough, should see this to appreciate just how special the various hues and shadings of a single color can impress you.

1934 50C Maryland MS66 PCGS #9328

A darker toned coin that almost looks more copper all over but also reflects hues of every color of the rainbow as a result.

1923-S 50C Monroe MS65+ PCGS #9333

This was the first pop 1 MS65 to be awarded. A lovely coin, combining a rare sharp strike for a Monroe together with attractive rainbow toning on both sides. As yet, this is the only Monroe to be awarded a 65+ by PCGS! So close to a 66 but, alas...... :-)

1936 50C Norfolk MS67 PCGS #9337

Ever so slight rays of sunlight gold illuminate both sides of the coin.

1920 50C Pilgrim MS66 PCGS #9359

Dual sides rim colors from a rainbow.

1936-S 50C Rhode Island MS66 PCGS #9365

Think of a Christmas tree and you have this Rhode Island. Multitudes of shades of red and green are dispersed throughout the coin on each side.

1937 50C Roanoke MS66+ PCGS #9367

This is another incredible low pop MS66+ in that from 2 o'clock to 8 o'clock this coin is the most gorgeous metallic blue that one can imagine and on both sides.

1936-D 50C San Diego MS66 PCGS #9372

This San Diego has any color you want and in any place you want, anywhere on the coin. It has an unusual pattern of a multitude of colors: red, blue, green, yellow, purple.

1935 50C Spanish Trail MS67 PCGS #9376

Imagine a Secure Plus MS 67 Spanish Trail that has every color of the rainbow, in a subtle manner, on both the obverse and the reverse. When you do that, you've just been introduced to this coin.

1936-D 50C Texas MS67 PCGS #9387

Have you ever seen a Texas where the star is almost completely gold in color? Well, let me show you mine! You're tempted to think it might be bimetallic when you first see it. The reverse is rim toned gold to complement the "gold star" that stands out on the obverse.

1952 50C Washington-Carver MS66+ PCGS #9434

Another rather MS66+ in a rarer date Washington-Carver that has it all. Golden and orange over half of each side, the strike is all there as well.

1936 50C York MS67 PCGS #9449

A very nice golden circle encompasses the circumference of both sides of this coin.

1893 25C Isabella MS66 PCGS #9220

WOW! "Incredible" is the word for this coin. I got an e-mail from Jon Rosenthal at Rare Coins of New Hampshire ("RCNH"). I've been waiting for a PCGS MS 66 Isabella that met Warren Mills exacting standards for over three years. Jon's e-mail said "Bob, Warren has the coin you've wanted, he'll bring it to the Baltimore show, he thinks you should buy it." That's all I needed to here because when Warren Mills says to buy a coin, it's a coin you must have in your collection. This is a fantastic Izzy. The obverse is toned throughout, like a rainbow. Red, green, gold, blue, color mixes and fade-ins. The reverse is even better. The strike is as sharp as I've ever seen on an Isabella. Another Warren Mills and RCNH coin that is off the market for decades to come because he's not called "The Eye," for no other reason. It took a while but when the right coin became available, Warren thought of me. The best dealer in America and who has the best eye together with the highest standards, bought an Isabella just for me because he knew I've been looking and waiting for over three years. Yes, I'm picky but that's why I have a collection of toners that have a number of pop 1's due to pluses and quality.

1936 50C Albany MS67 PCGS #9227

This is it! Rainbow toning, kissing the coin like rain drops on both sides in Christmas colors along with orange and blue hues. Tab toning as well on the obverse.

1937 50C Antietam MS67+ PCGS #9229

The first Pop 1 in Secure Plus, how much better can it get? This is a monster rainbow coin on both sides. Say the color or hue that you'd like to see on a coin and it is on this one.

1936 50C Arkansas MS66+ PCGS #9237

Another pop 1 on a Secure Plus coin! This has been off the market for decades as I originally bought it in a rattler holder. Both sides are monster toned in both vibrant and deep colors. Everyone who has seen this coin in hand wants it and has made me an offer. Sorry, not for sale!

1936 50C Bridgeport MS66 PCGS #9279

Warren Mills sought me out at a coin show and said "you need to buy this coin." Is there anything more I can add about this coin, after that? Just this, talk about original skin and a subtle toning that kisses the coin all over it.

1925-S 50C California MS66 PCGS #9281

I bought this from David Hall. It is an amazingly toned coin that is spot toned in shades of blue and gold on both sides.

1936-D 50C Cincinnati MS66 PCGS #9284

Attractive rim toning on both the obverse and reverse that hits every color of the rainbow. Unlike many Cincinnati's, this does not have the "faded silver" appearance that so many have, not from dipping but the conditions under which they were struck.

1936-D 50C Cincinnati MS66 PCGS #9284

Attractive rim toning on both the obverse and reverse that hits every color of the rainbow. Unlike many Cincinnati's, this does not have the "faded silver" appearance that so many have, not from dipping but the conditions under which they were struck.

1936 50C Cleveland MS66+ PCGS #9288

This is a "darker" coin but with good reason. How many toners do you see that are purple, blue, green and the deepest gold possible on both the obverse and reverse? There are a select few of 66+ Clevelands and there is no doubt why this is one of that small handful.

1936 50C Columbia MS66 PCGS #9291

An original rattler that was purposely set with the reverse on the front of the coin. It has monster toning, of all colors, on both sides but the reverse has tab toning as well. Orange, red, blue, violet...and the tree is green.

1892 50C Columbian MS66 PCGS #9296

The boldest rim toning, on both sides, that I have ever seen on this issue or many commems ever, for that matter. Pick your color because they are all available on this coin.

Subtle toning accompanied by the most original of skins that you'll ever see on a coin.

1936 50C Delaware MS67 PCGS #9301

My Delaware has one of the sharpest strikes that I have ever seen on a Delaware. It is "kissed" with toning on both sides of gold, green and blue.

1936 50C Delaware MS67 PCGS #9301

My Delaware has one of the sharpest strikes that I have ever seen on a Delaware. It is "kissed" with toning on both sides of gold, green and blue.

1936 50C Elgin MS67 PCGS #9303

This is a complete monster. Every possible color on a coin is on this one and on both sides. It's breathtaking when you first see it as the intensity of the colors strike you. One of the sharpest strikes for an Elgin as well.

1936 50C Gettysburg MS66 PCGS #9305

Like the Battle of Gettysburg, this coin's monster toning reflects what happened during the days of the battle. Deep blood reds on the shields are balanced by the gentle grass green hues on most of the coin.

1922 50C Grant Star MS65 PCGS #9307

One of Larry Shepherd's former finest! Rainbow rim toning on both sides of a Grant with Star is incredible to behold. Only the slightest of bag marks at 1 P.M. on the obverse, kept this from an MS67 as Larry said...and he's right. When I've shown it to professional graders at shows, their response has always been along the lines of "wow!"

1928 50C Hawaiian MS65 PCGS #9309

This is the atypical toned Hawaiian. It is not the "nausea yellow" common to the coin. Rather it is more lemon toned but with the addition of the colors of Christmas, spread throughout on each side. How many Hawaiians have you seen that are contain both red and green apparent to the naked eye?

1924 50C Huguenot MS66 PCGS #9314

Superb toned issue. Not a monster but still a "wow" coin. The rims on both sides will remind you of a rainbow.

1946 50C Iowa MS67 PCGS #9316

Now this is a monster rainbow! Pick your color and you will find it, frequently on both sides of this coin. On the rim of the obverse they merge into what might be considered as a psychedelic mix of colors. The strong strike, not usually found on an Iowa, is a bonus with this one.

1918 50C Lincoln MS66+ PCGS #9320

A great Lincoln. The first Secure Plus MS66+ that was awarded. Perhaps the sharpest strike I've ever seen on a Lincoln commem and is coupled with subdued, almost mellow, yet complex toning.

1936 50C Long Island MS66 PCGS #9322

Red, yellow, green, blue, gold and violet are the colors you will find on both sides of this coin. Thank you Warren Mills! Some of them are vibrant while others, like the green and violet, are more subtle. It has a strong strike which is the "topping off" of this coin.

1936 50C Lynchburg MS66+ PCGS #9324

One of less than a handful of Secure Plus MS66+ Lynchburgs. Streak gold and red toning predominate the obverse while gold toning dominates the reverse. Outstanding strike on an issue that usually lacks it as well.

This was the first pop 1 MS65 to be awarded. A lovely coin, combining a rare sharp strike for a Monroe together with attractive rainbow toning on both sides. As yet, this is the only Monroe to be awarded a 65+ by PCGS! So close to a 66 but, alas...... :-)

1938 50C New Rochelle MS66+ PCGS #9335

A striking purchase from Larry Shepherd. Pick the color you want to see and you will find it on this coin. A grader at a national show, first looked under his microscope and immediately stopped. He took his glasses off and said "incredible, where did you get this?" When I answered him, he said "I'm not surprised in the least!" It's like looking at a flower garden on both sides of a coin.

1936 50C Norfolk MS67 PCGS #9337

Ever so slight rays of sunlight gold illuminate both sides of the coin.

1936 50C Norfolk MS67 PCGS #9337

1937-D 50C Oregon MS68 PCGS #9347

This is it! The sun is golden yellow. The Indian's skin is red. The sky is blue. The grass is green. The wagon hints of attractive tan as it's natural fabrics at that time would have toned, themselves, over time and sun exposure.

1915-S 50C Panama-Pacific MS66+ PCGS #9357

Iridescent or luminescent colors, take your pick, throughout the coin and on both sides. There isn't a primary or secondary color that you won't find on this coin. How many MS66+'s of this issue exist in the pop reports? Not many, I can say for certain.

1926 50C Sesquicentennial MS65 PCGS #9374

1935 50C Spanish Trail MS67 PCGS #9376

Imagine a Secure Plus MS 67 Spanish Trail that has every color of the rainbow, in a subtle manner, on both the obverse and the reverse. When you do that, you've just been introduced to this coin.

1925 50C Vancouver MS66 PCGS #9399

Subtle shades of toning in luminescent colors predominate this coin. Upgrade from the MS65 that it began encapsulated life.

1927 50C Vermont MS66 PCGS #9401

This coin grows on you. It's a different kind of toner. Not monster, not necessarily readily apparent at first glance. However, look at it for 5 seconds and you discover multi-colored luminescence through the coin on both sides. As you rotate the coin, the colors change like a kaleidoscope.

1952 50C Washington-Carver MS66+ PCGS #9434

Another rather MS66+ in a rarer date Washington-Carver that has it all. Golden and orange over half of each side, the strike is all there as well.

1936 50C Wisconsin MS67 PCGS #9447
