Lot Description
1921-S 50C MS61 NGC. Untoned with ample sharpness for this prized scarcity, being only modest deficient in strike on Liberty's head and the feathers down the eagle's leg. If one really looks closely, a vertical pinscratch can be found down the lower half of the reverse. While both the 1921 and the 1921-D have lower mintages, the 1921-S is the most difficult of these three issues to locate in AU and finer grades. Finding a certified example in more average Mint State grades, in addition to being far less expensive, can actually prove more of a challenge than Select or better pieces. Census: 6 in 61, 87 finer (11/05).
