A 1946 Iowa Statehood Centennial half dollar, certified Mint State
68+ by Professional Coin Grading Service, highlights the Young
Collection of Classic Silver Commemoratives to be offered in a series
of online auctions closing in October.
The half dollar is also green stickered by Certified Acceptance
Corp., a post-certification service that stickers the outside of the
holders verifying the coin meets the standard for strict quality
within its grade.
The Iowa half dollar is one of the 144 coins from Young’s complete

the 144 coins in his set, earning him several PCGS Set Registry

testament to the quality Bruce selected, over 60 percent of the coins
gained CAC approval.”
