Lot Description
1917-D 50C Obverse MS66 PCGS. With obverse toning ranging from champagne to burgundy and a reverse color pattern reminiscent of cream (in the centers) and coffee (in the peripheries), this vibrantly colored and highly lustrous Walker is a treat for the eyes. Only a minimum of surface chatter is evident, and it is tough to see without magnification, affecting the visual effect of the coin not in the slightest. The strike is reasonably strong, with Liberty's thumb full, but a bit of weakness in the center skirt lines. This is easily the scarcer of the two varieties of the 1917-D half dollar, and is unknown in higher grades than this coin's MS66. Advanced date collectors will want to carefully consider adding this beauty to their collections. Population: 4 in 66, 0 finer (2/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
