About 1937-D Arkansas Silver Commemoratives
1937 Arkansas half dollars commemorate the 100th anniversary of the admission of Arkansas to the Union in 1836. While the first Arkansas halves were released in and dated 1935, the series went on for essentially half a decade, until 1939.
Arkansas halves were designed by Everett Burr and dies were prepared by Emily Bates of Arkansas. The obverse of the 1937 Arkansas half dollars features an eagle and rays, while the reverse depicts a jugate portrait of a Native American chief of 1836 and an American woman of 1935. The 1937 Arkansas commemorative half dollars were struck at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints and sold in three-piece sets at an issue price of $8.75.
1937 Arkansas half dollars are much scarcer than the 1935 and 1936 issues, though they are available with relative frequency in the marketplace and are most commonly found in grades of MS60-65. The 1937-S is the scarcest of the three in Gem grades, though all are scarce in the MS66 range and rare in grades of MS67 or better. Though Arkansas half dollars are known for their abundant levels of frosty luster, toning is prevalent on many examples.
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.
