Lot Description
1909-S 50C MS66 S NGC. The 1909-S half dollar is a somewhat overlooked issue within the Barber series at the Gem level of preservation, even more scarce in better Mint State grades than its mintage of 1.76 million pieces would suggest. The outstanding technical merits of this vibrant representative are perhaps surpassed by the coin's aesthetic appeal. Untoned centers give way to vivid shades of russet and turquoise iridescence at the margins. The only MS66 example out of five graded by NGC to receive the Star designation, with none finer (6/08). From the Duffy Collection.
