Lot Description
1921-S 50C MS62 PCGS. From a low mintage of 508,000 pieces, the 1921-S Walking Liberty half dollar is the rarest date of the series in Mint State. The issue was overlooked by collectors at the time of issue, and few examples were saved. As a result, the 1921-S is also the second rarest Walking Liberty half dollar in high grade (MS65 or better). The present coin is an attractive MS62 specimen, with original, satiny mint luster. The strike details are a bit soft on the central devices, as always seen on this issue. The surfaces display a minimum number of handling marks for the grade. Population: 11 in 62, 92 finer (7/10).
