1936 50C Wisconsin MS67 NGC. Wisconsin joined the Union in 1848, but a territorial government was established in 1836 -- an event commemorated 100 years later through the issuance of these half dollars. A badger is depicted on one side, and the state seal with forearm, pickaxe, and lump of lead ore appears on the other. Apparently, the badger-side was originally designated as the obverse, but some experts argue otherwise. This Superb Gem maintains brilliant, satiny centers with glints of golden-orange patina around the rims. Each side is essentially pristine. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
