This satiny beauty exhibits rich cartwheel luster, fairly sharp design elements, and soft champagne-gold iridescence that deepens at the rims. A notable scarcity in Mint State, especially at MS-65 and finer. Though more than four dozen examples of the date have been called MS-65 or finer by PCGS, we suspect that amount represents resubmissions, and we're fairly certain that many Gem examples are already housed in advanced Walking Liberty half dollar cabinets. A pleasing Gem whose value could very well surprise our audience once the bidding dust settles.
