Lot Description
1920-S 50C MS66 NGC. CAC. Like its D-mint counterpart from the same year, the 1920-S half is elusive in Mint State grades despite a high mintage compared to a number of other issues. Moreover, though the 1920-S may be available for a price in grades through Choice or even Gem condition. Premium Gems such as the coin offered here are top-drawer rarities. This immensely lustrous survivor offers pleasing detail for the issue and soft, lovely luster beneath occasional golden shadings. The beautifully preserved surfaces are silver-gray otherwise. One of just nine pieces at this level known to NGC, with just two numerically finer (1/09).
