Lot Description
1921-D 50C MS64 NGC. The 1921-PDS Walking Liberty half dollars are known as the great triumvirate of low-mintage keys in the series, 208,000 in the case of the 1921-D, lowest of the three. Anything at or approaching the Gem level is a rare coin that will undoubtedly see spirited bidding. This near-Gem is sharply detailed for an early Walker. Vibrant satiny luster covers the brilliant silver-white surfaces, which show a considerable number of die-polishing lines -- raised lines on the coin, not to be confused with hairlines, which are small indentions in the coin, usually from cleaning -- that contribute to the effect. A few minor ticks on the central devices are in concert with the grade but undistracting. Census: 80 in 64, 21 finer (6/11).
