Description

1927 Vermont Sesquicentennial. MS-67 (PCGS). CAC.

Multicolored iridescence at the obverse border, otherwise brilliant. A splendid, lustrous Superb Gem example issued to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Bennington. These pieces were frequently referred to as Bennington half dollars at the time of issue, but in subsequent decades the Vermont moniker gradually gained in popularity while the term Bennington all but disappeared from use in numismatic circles. According to Wikipedia.org, the battle was actually fought in Walloomsac, New York, which is said to be about 10 miles from Bennington, but the idea of selling Walloomsac half dollars simply would not catch on.

PCGS#: 9401
