Lot Description
1920-D 50C MS66 PCGS. With over 1.5 million pieces struck, the 1920-D is not one of the low-mintage rarities commonly touted as a key date. Yet above the MS65 level, it is impossible to deny the issue's condition rarity: NGC has graded only one such coin and PCGS has certified just six, for a total of seven at the MS66 level and none finer (12/09). This example's inherent quality is obvious at first glance, with light golden toning blanketing uncommonly lustrous surfaces. The top of the obverse adds an arc of peach. Liberty's head and branch hand offer uncommonly strong (though incomplete) detail, and only a few tiny marks are visible.
