Lot Description
1902-S 50C MS65 PCGS. CAC. The 1902-S is very elusive in Mint State, which is rather surprising considering that it had a mintage of nearly 1.5 million pieces. NGC and PCGS have each graded only 36 Uncirculated examples. Just 12 of these coins qualify for Gem status, and only a handful have been graded higher (7/11). This solid Gem shows steel-blue and golden-rose coloration streaked over each side and bright sparkling mint luster. The strike is soft on the eagle's right (facing) wing and claw, as usual. From The Oliver Collection.
