The Face of Both the Blue & the Gray

Scrawny 16-year-old James Sankey had to stand on his tip toes in order to pass the height test and enlist with the Union Army in 1863. Even though he saw front line action in a number of major battles, he survived to be a witness at Appomattox Court House as Lee surrendered to Grant. But, Sankey's greatest role in Civil War history didn't take place until he was 90. In 1936, he donned his flannel cap one more time to pose for a new silver half dollar to honor the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. In a stroke of brilliance, the coin's sculptor had Sankey pose for both the Union and Confederate soldiers' portraits - what better way to commemorate a war of "brother against brother." We are proud to have secured a small cache of these authentic 1936 Gettysburg Silver Half Dollars in pristine Gem Uncirculated condition. Each grades Mint State-65 (MS65) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Grading service varies.
