Lot Description
1895-S 50C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Moderately toned in swirling rose-gray and steel-blue shades with underlying surfaces that benefit from blazing cartwheel luster and pinpoint sharpness. A few wispy luster grazes are found almost exclusively on the portrait, but these are mentioned solely for accuracy and have little discernible effect on the eye appeal. Although this issue's Mint State rarity in relation to the original mintage is not as great as some of its contemporaries, impressive strike and luster qualities make the 1895-S popular with collectors, and Gem and better examples are condition rarities. Population: 2 in 66, 2 finer (11/10).
