Lot Description
1915-S 50C MS66 NGC. The Mint State population of 1915-S halves is relatively high through the near-Gem level of preservation, possibly the result of five Uncirculated rolls that turned up in 1957 (David Lawrence, 1991). Bright luster energizes this Premium Gem. Whispers of tan-gold visit the peripheries, and a well executed strike leaves sharp definition on the design features, save for softness on the upper right corner of the shield. A few minute marks might well prevent an even higher grade. Census: 6 in 66, 2 finer (3/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
