Lot Description
1918-S 50C MS65 PCGS. Despite a mintage of more than 10 million pieces, this San Francisco half dollar issue struck in the last year of World War I is a borderline condition rarity at the Gem level and unquestionably so any better. The MS65 coin offered here has broad, subtly frosted luster that is largely silver with just a few faint undercurrents of blue and the occasional top-splash of peach. Better-defined than usually seen for the date, and of course remarkably well-preserved by the same measure. A tiny nick is noted on the sun. Population: 30 in 65 (1 in 65+), 2 finer (12/12).
