About 1934-D Oregon Trail Silver Commemoratives

The 1934-D Oregon Trail half dollar hails from the Denver Mint, which produced just more than 7,000 examples of this popular commemorative type that year. The Oregon Trail half dollar, honoring the historic 2,000-mile path cutting through the western United States along which many pioneers died, was designed by the husband-and-wife design team of James Earle Fraser and Laura Gardin Fraser. The obverse showcases a Native American standing before a geographical map of the United States and a line of miniature Conestoga wagons crossing the path of the trail. The reverse shows a cattle-driven wagon rolling over a sun-splashed hill.

The 1934-D Oregon Trail halves were sold for $2 apiece, and most were saved in uncirculated grades. However, relatively few managed to remain in the top Mint State grades. Gems are not terribly uncommon, but the 1934-D is among the scarcest of all Oregon Trail half dollars in the grades of MS66 or higher – many show marks and other detractions across the faces of the coins, keeping the vast majority of specimens in grades below MS65.

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.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The values listed are only indications. CDN Publishing, LLC does not buy or sell collectibles. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value. CDN Publishing is not responsible for typographical or database-related errors.
