About 1935-S San Diego Silver Commemoratives
The 1935-S San Diego commemorative half dollar honors the California-Pacific International Exposition, which took place in the southern California city of San Diego in 1935 and 1936. The coin, designed by Robert Aitken, was sold for $1 at the fair. Pieces struck in 1935 derived from the San Francisco Mint; more were made in 1936, and those come from the Denver Mint.
San Diego half dollars are among the most common of all classic commemoratives in part because large hoards of these coins were released from a few original purchasers during the 1970s and ‘80s. Most 1935-S San Diego half dollars are known in Gem Uncirculated condition, with pieces common through at least MS66. A small number of MS67s and a handful of MS68s also survive.
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.
