Lot Description
1917-S 50C Reverse MS65 PCGS. Among the four mintmarked 1917-DS Walking Liberty half dollar issues, only the 1917-D Obverse is clearly more available than its cohort. In Gem grade PCGS has seen some 36 submissions of the 1917-S Obverse with three finer, compared with 45 of the 1917-S Reverse with 10 finer (12/13). This Gem 1917-S Reverse is certified in a PCGS green-label holder, one of quite a run of S-mintmarked early Walkers in these popular early slabs. The frosty surfaces are lightly tinged with gold and pale blue that appear mostly under a loupe, as the piece still presents as largely brilliant and softly frosted. A beautiful example with nominal contact marks for the grade. From The Klamath Mountain Collection, Part II.
