Lot Description
1937 50C MS68 S NGC. Although nearly 10 million examples of this issue were struck, the date is scarcer than some of its peers in the late 1930s. This example is sharply struck with virtually full design details on both sides. It has remarkable rainbow toning, especially vivid on the obverse, with underlying frosty luster. NGC gave this the coveted S designation for outstanding eye appeal, even beyond that normally associated with the grade. Despite the hundreds of 1937 Walkers that we have handled, this is the first time that we have offered an MS68 graded example in one of our auctions. Two examples of this date have been graded by NGC as MS68, but only this single coin received the special designation, thus we believe it may be the finest 1937 Walker currently known. Population: 1 in 68 S, 0 finer (6/05). From The Robert Moreno Collection.
