1927 50C Vermont MS64 NGC. Although the French had set up forts in Montreal and Quebec City by the early 1600s, a few hundred miles away from Vermont, there were no permanent colonies established in the Green Mountain state before 1724. Even at that time, ownership of the territory was disputed between New Hampshire and New York states. In 1777, Vermont finally gained its independence, an event commemorated by these half dollars. The surfaces of this near-Gem example feature frosty luster beneath a translucent veil of pale gold toning. Reed marks on Allen's cheek and below the catamount define the grade. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
