Lot Description
1920-S 50C MS65 PCGS. CAC. In Collecting & Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars, Jeff Ambio notes of this issue, "When viewed in the wider context of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar series ... the 1920-S is a rare coin in grades through MS-63 and very rare any finer." Offered here is an attractive and important Gem. The strike on the central "column" (head to hand) of Liberty shows typical softness, but the bright, softly frosted luster in the fields is delightful. Both sides show layers of patina, mainly light silver-gray at the interiors with ample yellow-to-orange colors at the margins as well as prominent blue-to-violet peripheral elements on the reverse. Population: 45 in 65, 4 finer (11/10).
