Lot Description
1895-S 50C MS66 NGC. As the cataloger wrote for this coin's description as part of the Eliasberg Collection, "Certainly this is one of the most beautiful, most desirable 1895-S half dollars in any collection today. This issue, relatively available in lower Mint State grades, is notably rare as offered here." The present coin is a spectacular survivor in every respect with one of the most impressive pedigrees in American numismatics. The surfaces are immensely lustrous and thoroughly frosty with elegant peach and gold shadings over a silver-gray base. The strike is uncommonly bold, and only a handful of minuscule marks are present on either side. Census: 4 in 66, 1 finer (6/08). Ex: J.M. Clapp; John H. Clapp; Clapp Estate; Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr.; The Louis E. Eliasberg Collection (Bowers and Merena, 4/97), lot 2075.
