Lot Description
1921-D 50C MS64 PCGS. As with almost all the 1919, 1920, and 1921 issues in the Walking Liberty series, the 1921-D is a highly respected and well-known absolute and condition rarity. It is ranked fourth in the series in mint condition. A near-Gem, such as this piece, is a great buy for the collector as it has almost all the attributes of a Gem at half the price. The striking detail on this piece is exceptionally sharp, not only for the issue but for early Walkers in general. The hard, satiny luster has an even layer of lilac-rose toning over each side. Only a couple of minor ticks keep this upper-end piece from an MS65 grade. From The Helen Gates Kirk Collection.
