Lot Description
1929-S 50C MS65 PCGS. The mint luster is satiny with a little bit of golden color at the edges. The fields display light die polishing marks (not to be confused with hairlines), and the strike is surprisingly bold for the issue. The 1929-S has a mintage figure that is approximately 900,000 coins greater than that of its similarly dated D-mint counterpart. Nevertheless, it is the scarcer of the two issues, particularly above the Mint State threshold. Ex: National Money Signature (Heritage, 3/2003), lot 6036.
