Lot Description
1918-S 50C MS65 PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. This remarkable '18-S is noteworthy for its effulgent luster and for lovely yellow-gold and silver color on the obverse. The reverse shows deeper lilac and purple-rose toning. The surfaces are satiny and remarkably clean with only a couple of small marks noted on each side. The 1918-S half dollar is the ultimate condition rarity of the Walking Liberty series. More than 10 million pieces were produced, but the acquisition of a Gem example can be very challenging. Population: 28 in 65, 2 finer (3/09).
