Lot Description
1917-S 50C Obverse MS61 NGC. Satiny and essentially untoned, this is a visually appealing representative of the conditionally scarce 1917-S Obverse Walking Liberty half. This issue had a small mintage of less than one million pieces, before a new design showing the branch mintmark on the reverse was introduced. The reverse design type then had a San Francisco mintage in excess of 5.5 million coins. This Mint State example only shows a handful of tiny surface marks, but the luster is a trifle subdued, keeping it from a higher grade.
