This attractive champagne-gold specimen exhibits lively cartwheel luster, nicely struck devices -- not full but near enough for comment -- and excellent all-around eye appeal. Marks are at a minimum and the overall eye appeal is substantial, especially to the naked eye. The 1928-S half dollar is a stand-alone issue -- as no circulation strike half dollars were minted at Philadelphia or Denver this year (although Philadelphia did strike the Hawaiian Sesquicentennial issues). Only a half dozen grading <em>events</em> have been registered by PCGS finer than the offered coin, and the preponderance of <em>events </em>at the MS-65 level leads us to believe that some resubmissions have occurred. The quality and appeal of this Gem are undeniable and bold bidding will be the order of the day when it crosses the auction block.
