Lot Description
1921-S 50C AU50 NGC. It may be difficult for some to believe that the current (12/01/02) CDN bid of the '21-S Walker could be as high as $5,800 in About Uncirculated 50. After all, AU50 is a circulated, not Mint State grade. Nevertheless, the substantial financial outlay that a collector will have to make to acquire a minimally worn representative of this S-mint Half Dollar is justified. A genuine condition rarity, most extant 1921-S Halves display evidence of having seen considerable circulation. Not so the present example. The surfaces possess only light rub over the higher points of the design. Rich lavender-gray patina yields to orange-gold tinting at the borders. There is a small distraction past 9 o'clock on the reverse rim, but neither side reveals any sizeable or excessively bothersome blemishes.
