Lot Description
1923-S 50C MS66 PCGS. CAC. Ex: The Dakota Collection. The 1923-S is a transitional issue in terms of Walking Liberty half dollar collecting; not so rare as the famously challenging 1921 dates, it is more elusive than the issues after the denomination resumed in 1927. Despite a mintage in the multi-millions, the 1923-S is a challenging date in the better Mint State grades, blossoming as a condition rarity at the MS66 level, where this coin lands. The strongly lustrous obverse has light gold and blue overtones that intensify on the reverse, particularly at the top and left. Population: 6 in 66, 1 finer (1/12).
