Satiny and mostly brilliant with some wisps and blushes of golden brown and violet. Notable as the only half dollar issue produced between the years 1921 and 1927. Although more than 2.1 million were issued, hardly anyone thought to set aside examples, and hence survivors are elusive at the MS-64 level and rare finer.
