About 1925 Lexington Silver Commemoratives
The Lexington half dollar remembers the shot heard ‘round the world, when in 1775 the proverbial first gunshot fired during the start of the American Revolution at the Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts, and the first British soldiers were wounded in the battles of Lexington and Concord. More than 160,000 coins were minted, and a whopping 60,000 were sold for $1 as souvenirs during associated 150th anniversary events in April 1925. Others were distributed through sales points in other areas of New England and were sold to collectors throughout other parts of the United States.
Lexington half dollars, designed by Chester Beach, are often found in the grades of MS63-65, and MS66s are scarce but available on the marketplace, while examples in higher grades are quite rare. Most uncirculated specimens carry lustrous surfaces and offer excellent eye appeal. One nuance of this coin is that some pieces show rub on the knee on the soldier as seen on the obverse, a detraction that can be avoided with some searching.
About CDN Prices
All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.
CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.
Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.
Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.
CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.
