Lot Description
1916-S 50C MS66 PCGS. The 1916-S is by far the scarcest of the first-year Walking Liberty issues at all grade levels and can only occasionally be located in the lower reaches of Mint State. This incredible example is among the nicest we have ever seen of the first year key. Both obverse and reverse exhibit a matte-like, satiny sheen that is hardly disturbed by coin-to-coin contact and central striking details that are quite bold for the issue. Bits of reddish-golden toning frame the obverse and reverse. Population: 11 in 66, 1 finer (10/03).
