Lot Description
1919 50C MS65 PCGS. CAC. The P-Mint 1919 half had the lowest of the three half dollar issues for that year with fewer than one million examples struck. Nonetheless, in MS63 and MS64 this issue is relatively plentiful, and PCGS reports populations of 75 and 113, respectively. At the MS65 level, however, the population shrinks significantly, and any higher the 1919 becomes decidedly rare. PCGS reports only 23 examples finer than the present coin (7/11). The strike is complete, except for the very top of the skirt lines. The surfaces display lovely frosted mint luster with an overlay of pale, almost non-existent color on each side. From The Oliver Collection.
