Lot Description
1921-D 50C MS64 PCGS. The 1921-D claims the lowest mintage of the Walking Liberty series, at 208,000 pieces, and few examples were saved by collectors. Examples in Gem condition are elusive and expensive, making attractive near-Gems, like the present coin, all the more desirable. The satiny, brilliant surfaces of this impressive Choice specimen display a light silver-gold patina. The strike is sharp but not full, and yet Liberty's thumb is distinguishable. A few undistracting light abrasions help define the grade. Certified in a green-label holder. PCGS has graded only 34 pieces finer (4/12).
