Lot Description
1904 50C MS66 NGC. In case you weren't already convinced of this issue's rarity in Gem condition, it has been eight years since Heritage has offered an MS65 or better 1904 Half Dollar at auction. In MS65 condition, only 13 coins have been certified by the two major services, underscoring that the 1904 is one of the most difficult P-mint issues to obtain in Gem condition, and a date that is certainly unappreciated in this regard. In MS66 condition, the 1904 is even rarer with only two such coins certified by NGC and none finer (11/04). This boldly struck example is draped in milky golden and lilac patina. The underlying surfaces display a hard, satiny brilliance and display just a few inconsequential marks on Liberty's cheek and neck.
