1921-S 50C MS (PCGS# 6585)
Lot Number: 7383
While the 1921 and 1921-D issues hold the distinction of the lowest mintages (and highest premiums in lower grades) in the series, the 1921-S outshines them in significance in higher grades as found here. The present coin offers satiny surfaces that contribute to abundant mint luster on both sides. The coin is mostly brilliant with traces of soft champagne toning, primarily on the obverse. Some striking softness is noted on the higher points of the design, which we imagine may have been considered in the grading process as upon close study there are relatively few marks of any significance. A pleasing and choice piece that earned the coveted green sticker from CAC.<br /> <br /> <strong>Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers<br /> </strong>At this grade level the 1921-S is <em>the </em>rarity in the beautiful Liberty Walking half dollar series. If this is on your want list, here indeed is a great opportunity to fill in the key issue in one of America’s most loved series.
