Lot Description
1899-S 50C MS67 NGC. This coin is stark white in color and highly lustrous. The surfaces are pristine and show virtually no handling ticks or milling marks, as one would expect for this exemplary grade. Even the strike is superb, with no signs of weakness seen, even on the eagle's claws and the clutch of arrows. This piece is identifiable by a minor speck located just below the upper right star on the obverse. This piece is simply amazing, as the surfaces, luster, and strike are so close to perfection. NGC and PCGS have graded a combined five pieces this high with a single coin graded higher (11/09).
