Lot Description
1934 50C MS68 NGC. With a mintage of nearly 7 million pieces, the 1934 is available in all grades through sharply struck Gem. In this lofty grade, however, the 1934 is nearly unobtainable. NGC and PCGS combined have certified only 15 examples in MS68, and none finer. This specimen exhibits a sharp strike, including excellent definition on Liberty's left thumb and adjacent branches, and on the gown lines. Radiantly lustrous surfaces are adorned with delicate whispers of cobalt-blue, golden-brown, and lavender patination. Nearly pristine surfaces reveal just a few minor, unobtrusive marks. Census: 8 in 68, 0 finer (2/09). Ex: Heritage (4/2006), lot 2943. From The Joseph C. Thomas Collection.
