Lot Description
1919-D 50C MS64 PCGS. The 1919-D Walking Liberty half dollar is an acknowledged key to the series in the higher Mint State grades, and it is likely the single most elusive issue of all at the Gem level. This silver-gray near-Gem is one of 71 submissions in this grade at PCGS, and only 11 are finer there; NGC has seen 82 grading events in MS64 with only four finer (12/12). Soft satin luster dominates each side, with some weakness on the central portions of Liberty. The reverse is a bit better-struck overall. There are few mentionable marks appearing on either side.
