A GTG with two Vermont Commems. (grades in last post)
I have always been drawn to the Vermont Commemorative Half-Dollar because it has an intriguing design for my liking. First, it's struck in a nice, high relief so that it almost looks like a medal. Second, because the reverse is just flat out bad a$$ with a cougar depicted in stalk mode!! What a great choice. One thing I've noticed from looking at quite a few of these coins is that many have unstruck flaws on the obverse portrait and/or flatness on the hair just behind the cheek. The result is a lot of unappealing coins and grades in the MS63 range.
I thought I would post two examples for members to consider and grade, albeit entirely from images. I'll wait an appropriate time before I do the reveal. Thanks and enjoy.
