Lot Description
1915-D 50C MS66+ PCGS Secure. CAC. Ex: Duckor/Price/Norweb. The obverse has the bust tip die crack along with a faint crack at star 5 and another at the tops of GOD. The reverse has a faint crack at S OF. The strike is weak at the right wing and claw, but still well above average. The mintmark is right of center and about midway between the eagle's tail and the D in DOLLAR. This impressive piece has a wonderful provenance from the Norweb, Price, and Duckor Collections. David Akers wrote about this piece: "When eye appeal and overall appearance are considered along with technical quality (lack of marks, etc.), it is apparent that Gems of the caliber of this piece are quite rare and very desirable." This single MS66+ coin is the second-finest example certified and will likely become part of a long-term collection. Population (10/10): MS66 (12); MS66+ (1). Ex: Norweb Collection (Bowers and Merena, 11/1988), lot 3665; Dr. Thaine B. Price (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 195; 2010 ANA Auction (Heritage, 8/2010), lot 3244.
