1936 Albany, New York Charter. MS-68 (NGC). Virtually pristine surfaces exhibit lovely orange-russet peripheral toning around brilliant centers. Frosty and smooth throughout with a fully executed strike. Fittingly designed by Gertrude K. Lathrop of Albany, New York, this issue celebrates the 250-year anniversary of the charter of Albany in 1686; well before then and well before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, Dutch and Swedish settlers were farming in the Albany/Hudson River Valley area of New York. A handsome coin fit for one of the finest collections. Just a single coin has been graded finer by NGC.
