Lot Description
1919-D 50C AU58 PCGS. CAC. The 1919-D half dollar issue is rare even in XF and AU grades, in Mint State grades the third rarest behind only the 1919-S and 1921-S. Gem 1919-Ds almost never come on the market; the last we offered was in 2005, although an MS66 PCGS piece brought $253,000 in one of our Signature sales in 2009. This near-Mint State 1919-D shows only the expected high-point rub with essentially all of the appeal of a Mint State coin. Lovely pinkish-gold surfaces are relatively unabraded.
