Lot Description
1902-S 50C MS67 NGC. Clearly among the finest 1902-S Half Dollars, this nearly flawless representative is endowed with incredible radiance and is sharply struck throughout. Flecks of light obverse toning confirm the piece's originality. In the interest of full disclosure, we feel obligated to mention a few roller marks running horizontally across the portrait, identical to those sometimes seen on S-mint Morgan Dollars from this same era. These, however, are a product of striking and do not affect the technical merits of this extraordinary coin. This and the preceding coin are branch mint issues that are in the upper tier of scarcity in Mint State.
