Hi all,

One more for today! This is another favorite of mine.

Any thoughts on grade?

Wow! Totally cool man! That must have a pocket piece for almost a century. No idea on a grade other than it has to be under VG.

After looking at quite a few of this type,
I don't know why Stone Mountain Half Dollars saw much more circulation than most other commemoratives.

Nice looking example. Thats a keeper for sure. I suggest technical grade is G06.

It's very similar to a PCGS certified example that I gifted to a CCF member years ago, but alas no longer have a photo of. I'd show mine but it's a true lowball at PCGS PO01 and the comparison won't assist you.

It was primarily an availability issue.

The 1925 Stone Mountain half dollar had one of the largest mintage amounts of the entire series - over 2.3 million. Though roughly 1 million were returned/held by the US Mint, ~1.3 million were held by collectors/souvenir seekers.

When the failing U S (global) economy forced folks to do whatever they could to care for themselves, there were far more Stone Mountain half dollars around to be spent than other commemorative coins that had only a fraction of the Stone Mountain's original mintage.

So, more available meant more in circulation.
