Lot Description
1908-S 50C MS66 NGC. Although this piece is marked by NGC as "T. Price Coll." we do not believe it to be the example from the Dr. Thaine B. Price Collection (Akers, 5/1998), lot 177, as it does not match the plate for that coin. It nonetheless stands on its own as an attractive Premium Gem of this, one of the most conditionally elusive issues in the series. The powder-gray surfaces are quite well-struck, close to full, and little evidence of contact appears. Light roller marks show under a loupe, crossing Liberty's cheek diagonally. NGC has seen only four submissions in this grade, and a single one finer (3/12). From The Estate of John C. Hugon.
