Lot Description
1921-S 50C AU50 PCGS. CAC. Although a few other dates have even lower mintages, the 1921-S Walking Liberty half dollar is the rarest date of the series in Mint State. Pleasing AU specimens are a good alternative to expensive technically Uncirculated pieces that usually have no advantage in eye appeal. This lightly circulated example shows a few traces of actual wear, but most areas of incomplete detail can be attributed to the soft strike always seen on this issue. This attractive AU example retains much original mint luster, and only minor abrasions are evident.
