1935-S 50C San Diego MS63 NGC. The California-Pacific International Exposition two-coin set includes the 1935-S (70,132 coins) and the 1936-D (30,092 coins). Curiously, 180,000 of the 1935-S San Diego halves were recoined to strike 1936-D representatives, which in turn were melted en masse. A faint trace of golden color complements virtually brilliant surfaces with softly frosted luster. A group of marks on Minerva's knee are the only apparent flaws. Ex: Eric P.
