Lot Description
1921 50C MS64 PCGS. CAC. A whisper of autumn-gold denies full brilliance, but this Choice key date Walking Liberty half has booming luster and a sharp strike. Patience and a loupe locates a few unimportant abrasions. An important acquisition at the Choice level. Only the 1921-D has a lower mintage in the Walking Liberty half dollar series, 208,000 pieces versus 246,000 examples for the 1921 from Philadelphia, and those are the only two Walkers which have mintages falling below the quarter-million threshold. PCGS has certified 56 numerically finer representatives (1/11). From The Birmingham Collection.
