Lot Description
1917-S 50C Reverse MS65 PCGS. CAC. Gold-tinged margins broaden most at the lower left obverse, but the interiors are resolutely pale silver with only a suggestion of gray tones. Delicately frosted high points are notable on the eagle's form, which shows typical softness on the front leg but better feather detail elsewhere. On the obverse, only the tiniest touch of thumb separation is visible, though in the context of the 1917-S Reverse Mintmark half dollar, this must be considered a decent strike. A quality Gem example of an issue that is overshadowed by the Obverse Mintmark variant but genuinely is rare this fine. Population: 44 in 65, 9 finer (6/13). From The Warsaw Collection.
