Of the first ten U.S. modern half dollar commemoratives of 1982-1995, this handsome proof is easily the most coveted. Only 330,002 were issued in finest proof quality, with double-struck frosted engravings and dazzling mirror backgrounds. The obverse displays a Civil War drummer and a defensive position. The reverse portrays a Civil War cannon overlooking a battlefield with the inscription, "Enriching Our Future by Preserving the Past." Copper-nickel.
Please note that our modern commemoratives are not always available in the original mint packaging.
