Lot Description
1921-D 50C MS65 PCGS. The 1921-D has the lowest mintage of the famous triumvirate of Walking Liberty halves from this year, but the 1921-S, with a higher mintage, is the rarest Walking Liberty half in Mint State. The 1921-D is nonetheless rare in its own right: Jeff Ambio, in his recent treatise, says, "The 1921-D is not quite as rare as the 1919-D, 1919-S, or 1921-S in terms of total number of Mint State coins known. On the other hand, this issue is rarer than the 1919-S in high grades. A 1921-D that grades even MS-62 or MS-63 represents an extremely important buying opportunity in any numismatic market." The present impressive Gem offers pale, even golden-lilac patina over each side, with exceptionally strong underlying mint luster. The strike, although generally bold, is just a trifle soft on the head of Liberty and the eagle's foreleg. The surfaces overall are remarkably clean and show no obvious marks. Population: 30 in 65, 3 finer (2/09). From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
