Lot Description
1920-D 50C MS66 NGC. The 1920-D is a notable strike rarity among early Walkers. This piece is far above average for the issue, with nearly complete definition on Liberty's head, and close to two-thirds of the skirt lines are also complete. Walking Liberty specialists have noted that subdued mint luster is often a problem with this issue. The surfaces of this coin are highly lustrous, with coruscating mint frost and just a trace of light golden toning around the margins. The 1920-D is elusive in all Uncirculated grades, and only a handful of examples are known above the Gem level. Census: 1 in 66, 0 finer (12/08).
