Lot Description
1918-S 50C MS64 NGC. CAC. Close to 10.3 million half dollars were struck at San Francisco in 1918, the last sizable issue from that Mint before the post-World War I economic slowdown. Examples are available for a price through MS64, though Gems are condition rarities. This near-Gem is attractive with gold, violet, and blue patina over much of each side, deeper on the reverse. Softly struck but with vibrant luster that is subtly frosted.
