Lot Description
1908-S 50C MS64 NGC. David Lawrence believes the 1908-S Barber half dollar is underrated, because of the fairly large mintage of 1.6 million pieces. Apparently the survival rate was low. Examples at the near-Gem level are rare. The present coin displays light, nearly brilliant centers, which turn reddish golden, then cobalt at the rims. Full striking details are evident throughout. Census: 12 in 64, 8 finer (12/09).
