Lot Description
1917-S 50C Obverse MS63 NGC. The Half Dollars of 1917 have five different variations of mints and mintmark placements. The 1917-S Obverse is the scarcest of these five variations, and it is also one of the most difficult early Walkers at the Mint State level. It is quite unusual to have two of this issue in the same auction at the same grade level. This piece is especially well struck and shows light gray-brown toning over the satiny, matte-like surfaces. Minimally abraded, and in fact, suggestive of an even higher grade. From the Bent Tree Collection of Walking Liberty Halves.
