Lot Description
1897-S 50C MS64 PCGS. Mottled walnut-brown, pearl-gray, and ocean-blue colors embrace this satiny example. The reverse is essentially unabraded, and the strike is good save for minor softness on the fletchings and right shield corner. Moderate obverse marks include a vertical line right of the ear, unobtrusive because of the original toning. A desirable issue in all grades, the low mintage 1897-S is rare and coveted in Mint State.
