Lot Description
1908-S 50C MS63 PCGS. In The Complete Guide to Barber Halves (1991), David Lawrence commented that this issue is: "Underrated because of fairly high mintage." That seems like an understatement, as fewer than 135 pieces have been certified at all grade levels by NGC and PCGS combined, of the 1.64 million coins originally produced. This appealing Select example is well struck and highly lustrous, with silver-gray centers and rich golden-brown and cobalt peripheral toning. A few slide marks on Liberty's cheek and neck deny a higher grade assessment. Population: 9 in 63, 29 finer (3/08).
