US Illinois Commemorative Half Dollar 1918
The United States issued a wonderful assortment of special commemorative half dollars starting in 1892 and running through 1954. They started again in 1982, but the modern commemoratives don't hold a candle to the older ones because the modern designs are full of pet projects and political correctness (that's my opinion of course, not authenticated fact!)
Your 1918 Illinois Centennial half dollar carries catalog values as follows:
well preserved: $100 US dollars
fully uncirculated: $200
Apply the principles found on our Terminology page to convert these catalog values to actual buy and sell values.
