Lot Description
1921-S 50C AU50 NGC. The San Francisco Mint produced 548,000 half dollars in 1921, and nearly every one immediately entered circulation, and most stayed there a long time. Today, this issue is common in Good to VG grade, rare any finer. This is an excellent example of the issue with faint heather toning over lustrous surfaces. The high points of the design show some evidence of wear, however, the overall eye appeal is excellent. Recent population data suggests that this is the rarest Walker in grades of AU or better. The less famous 1919-D issue is the rarest in Gem quality, however. The opportunity to acquire an AU grade '21-S half dollar is infrequent.
