|Service Catalog #||9378|
1925 50C Stone Mountain AU55 NGC. The first coins from this issue, which would eventually exceed 2.3 million pieces, were struck on January 21, 1925 -- the 101st anniversary of the birth of Stonewall Jackson. These Stone Mountain commemorative half dollars represented an attempt to generate additional funding for the famous carving outside Atlanta. Ultimately, more than 1.3 million coins were sold for $1 apiece. Partial frosty luster remains over minimally toned surfaces. This Choice AU half dollar displays good detail with normal friction for the grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
