Lot Description
1934-S 50C MS66 S NGC. It is interesting to compare and contrast the 1934-S with the 1933-S. Though only separated by one year, what one can expect is significantly different from each issue. It is basically a given that the 1933-S will be fully struck. That is definitely not something taken for granted on the 1934-S. This piece, however, shows striking details that are comparable to most 1933-S halves. Additionally, the mint luster is thick and frosted, and each side has almost brilliant centers. The rim on the obverse shows lovely iridescent toning, while the reverse has just a bit of golden color. This is an outstanding 1934-S for a serious set of Walking Liberty halves. Census: 5 in 66 S, 1 finer with the S designation (2/10).
