1936-D 50C Columbia -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Each branch of the United States mint struck 8,000 Columbia half dollars for inclusion in three-coin sets. An additional 1,000 pieces were struck at Philadelphia for individual sale. Small quantities of assay coins were also produced at each facility, including nine coins at the Colorado mint. Strike detail is bold on the two capitol buildings and the palmetto tree. Cleaning has muted the satiny luster on each side of this brilliant half dollar. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
