Lot Description
1895-S 50C MS65 NGC. While occasionally available in lower grades, Gem 1895-S halves are extremely elusive. At NGC and PCGS combined, only 14 Gems have been certified, with eight finer (1/08). The strike details on this piece are well brought up in all areas: The only hint of softness occurs on the arrow feathers. The bright, satiny surfaces show just the slightest trace of golden toning. A few minute marks on the cheek and neck are well within the parameters of the MS65 designation. Census: 5 in 65, 5 finer (1/08). From The Southwest Collection.
