Framed Image of Robinson Commemorative Obverse Plaster with Joseph T. Robinson Signature & Robinson Commemorative

The Arkansas commemorative half dollar was issued from 1935-1939, but in 1936 an additional variety of the half dollar was prepared and sold that featured a large portrait of the then-living Senator Joseph T. Robinson, who had been the Democratic nominee for Vice President in the 1928 general election.

Overall dimensions of the frame are approximately 13-1/2 x 15-1/2 inches while the image of the obverse plaster is approximately 7-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches. Robinson signed his name boldly and clearly and the signature is approximately 5 inches in length and done in somewhat faded (presumably black) ink. Beneath this there is a Robinson commemorative half dollar that appears within a circular cut-out in the frame matting. The reverse has an attached newspaper article as well as a notation that the framing was done in Little Rock, AR by Tom Allen in January, 1937.

Priced at: $3,500.00
