Lot Description
1916-S 50C MS66 NGC. Fully lustrous with golden toning deepening slightly at the obverse periphery and over most of the reverse. The matte-like, satin surfaces are nearly void of post-striking impairments. The strike, while not 100% full, is exceptional for this scarce first-year issue. The combination of first year of issue and obverse mintmark makes this date one of the most popular 20th century coins. The mintage is also among the lowest of the series. Only the 1921 and 1921-D keys and the hoarded 1938-D have lesser productions. Only two pieces have been certified finer by NGC and PCGS combined. Census: 11 in 66, 1 finer (2/06).
