Lot Description
1917-D 50C Obverse MS65 NGC. Ex: Pittman. The second and final year of the Obverse Mintmark style, but this Gem is the only one pedigreed--so far as we know--to the fabulous John Jay Pittman Collection. The D mintmark is entered low in the die and canted slightly to the right. A silver-gold Gem with few marks and the normal somewhat weak strike through the central device high points. Census: 42 in 65, 3 finer (7/10). Ex: bought from James Kelly (4/25/1952) for $22.50; John Jay Pittman Collection (Akers, 5/1998), lot 1633.
