Lot Description
1917-D 50C Reverse MS65 NGC. Among the mintmarked issues of 1917 half dollars, the varieties with obverse "D" or "S" have the lower mintages and greater fame. It is clear from census data, however, that at the Gem level the reverse-mintmark issues are condition rarities themselves. This 1917-D half dollar with reverse mintmark is primarily pale silver with well-rounded luster and occasional hints of gold against pale silver surfaces. A few tiny marks are clustered on Liberty's skirt, yet the fields are surprisingly abrasion-free. Detail is average with the stub of a thumb visible on the branch hand. From The Zack Fluhr Collection.
