Lot Description
1917-S 50C Reverse MS65 NGC. Of the four mintmarked variants for 1917-dated half dollars (Denver or San Francisco, obverse or reverse), the 1917-S Reverse half enjoys by far the highest mintage, greater than the other three put together. Even so, the 1917-S Reverse presents a significant challenge for the collector who wants a coin in MS65 or better condition. This Gem has faint gold, peach, and blue overtones across silver surfaces, flashy on the obverse with frostiness across the high points of the reverse. Though Liberty's branch hand shows minimal detail, her head is better-defined. From The Zack Fluhr Collection.
