Lot Description
1920-D 50C MS66 PCGS. Ex: The Hiatt Collection. This piece offers exceptional quality for the issue, with a desirable sharp strike on Liberty's head. The luster is satiny throughout, and the surfaces are a delight to study. Rarely are the fields and devices found so close to perfection, especially when combined with such an early date. There are a couple of identifying marks, but they are well hidden by the skirt lines. One resides just above the sun on the leading edge of Liberty's skirt; another is found on her knee; and the last is on the outer back row of skirt lines, with each going roughly the same direction, aimed at 10 o'clock. The reverse has a minor nick on the wing below the C of AMERICA and another small nick on the eagle's neck. The fields and appearance of this coin are marvelously appealing, and one could scarcely imagine a more attractive example. The combined NGC and PCGS population reports show seven pieces graded as such, with none seen finer (2/09). Ex: The William & Harrison Hiatt Registry Collection of Walking Liberty Half Dollars, Part One (Heritage, 1/2005), lot 30244. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
