Lot Description
1907-S 50C MS65 PCGS. The 1.25 million pieces struck for this San Francisco half dollar issue went from the Granite Lady out into an earthquake-devastated city. Little thought was given to saving examples for the future, and the vast majority of the issue went straight into commerce. High-end survivors such as this satiny Gem are rare and treasured exceptions to the rule of heavily circulated examples. With its pleasing design definition and rich rose, orange, green, blue, and violet patina, this carefully preserved coin is a winner in every respect. Population: 8 in 65, 6 finer (11/10).
