Lot Description
1914-S 50C MS66 PCGS. In Gem condition, the 1914-S is virtually as scarce as the 1913-S even though 50% more coins were struck of the '14-S. The 1914-S also may be underpriced at this grade level because of the low mintage attraction of the 1914 P-mint. This is a terrific piece that has smooth, virtually unblemished surfaces (a few tiny marks can be found, but only with a magnifier). The striking details are remarkably strong on each side and the bright, satiny mint luster is virtually free from toning. An outstanding, high grade 1914-S half and one of only four pieces that have been so graded by PCGS--NGC has only certified three such coins, and none are finer at either service (11/04).
