Lot Description
1919-S 50C MS63 PCGS. The 1919-S Walking Liberty half in Mint State is second in series rarity only to the renowned 1921-S. This Select specimen displays appealing gray-gold surfaces that are relatively unmarked. There is a partial thumb visible on Liberty, and the head details are plain though incomplete. A small indent in the center of Liberty's lower gown, above the sandal, is likely of Mint origin. It is perhaps only the somewhat muted luster that precludes an even finer grade, but this is nonetheless an excellent representative for the issue and grade level.
