Lot Description
1909-S 50C MS67 PCGS. More than a century has passed since the striking of the 1909-S half dollar, a post-earthquake issue of fewer than 1.8 million pieces. Like many of its peers, the 1909-S half saw heavy commercial use, making well-preserved examples all the more noteworthy. This Superb Gem, one of six graded by PCGS with none finer (3/12), offers complete eye appeal. Well-defined devices (including the eagle's claws) have bright luster swirling around them. Largely silver color has hints of green-to-gold in the peripheral patina. This important coin is housed in a green label holder. From The Estate of John C. Hugon.
