Lot Description
1920-S 50C MS65 NGC. This is a relatively high mintage date, with some 4,624,000 pieces struck, yet it is elusive in Gem quality. Due to a substantially higher mintage, the actual rarity of this issue in Gem quality is often overlooked. Although not fully struck, this is a lovely example of the issue. Liberty's head, hand, and skirt lines are all less than fully defined, like the eagle's upper leg details on the reverse. Heavy die polishing lines in the right obverse field impart a satiny appearance. The surfaces are fully brilliant with just the faintest champagne toning. Population: 35 in 65, 9 finer (6/05). From The Robert Moreno Collection.
