Lot Description
1917-D 50C Reverse MS65 NGC. A partial split thumb is visible on this Gem 1917-D Reverse Mintmark half dollar, but that is only the start among many attractions. The full mint luster is blatant on each side, complementing the original patina, silver-white in the centers with thin rings of rose and pink more prevalent near the rims on each side. Thorough examination under a loupe reveals no relevant marks on either side, just a few scattered, small ticks unworthy of mention. The Gem grade of this piece has been attained by 22 submissions at NGC with only four numerically finer, so interested collectors may wait a long time for a higher-graded example (10/12).
