Lot Description
1897-S 50C MS63 NGC. This Select Barber half dollar is brilliant save for a wisp of tan toning on each side. Booming luster sweeps the sharply struck surfaces. Unimportant contact on the portrait is all that limits the grade. The 1897-S is a better date in all grades, and is even scarcer than its mintage of 933,900 pieces suggests.
