Lot Description
1909-S 50C MS66+ PCGS. CAC. Rich patina, olive-green at the narrow borders with thin skeins of similar color reaching into blue-green interiors, defines the eye appeal of this S-mint Barber half. Under the toning is a carefully preserved coin that comes remarkably close to Superb Gem status with only a few tiny, scattered marks on satiny surfaces. This century-old date was little-saved at the time of release, and a mintage of 1,764,000 pieces has left few opportunities for high-end survivors such as the present piece. PCGS has certified just seven numerically finer examples (3/11).
