Lot Description
1919-S 50C MS63 PCGS. Original tan-gold and battleship-gray patina adorns this attractively struck and shimmering better date Walker. There are no distracting abrasions, and the eye appeal is undeniable. The 1919-S actually has the highest mintage of any of the three mints that year, but the production of 1,552,000 pieces is very low by the standards of the series. This issue becomes scarce in Very Fine grades, and Uncirculated survivors are far fewer than the number of advanced collectors who seek them. Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2004), lot 6488.
