Lot Description
1933-S 50C MS67 NGC. A sensational Superb Gem example of this elusive issue, this piece is tied for the finest certified example by either NGC or PCGS. The surfaces are highly lustrous and frosty with brilliant silver color on both sides, accented by splashes of peripheral gold and blue toning. This date presents a bit of a quandary among collectors as it is considered by some to be the first issue of the so-called "short set" while others believe that the 1934 half dollar is the first date in the abbreviated series. Census: 2 in 67, 0 finer (2/07).
