Lot Description
1937 50C MS68 S NGC. CAC. From a large mintage of 9.5 million pieces, the 1937 Walking Liberty half dollar is an available date in most grades, and a popular type issue. The 1937 becomes rare at the MS67 level, and MS68 examples are extremely rare. To date, this coin is the only MS68 specimen to be awarded the coveted Star designation by NGC (7/10). The present coin is a magnificent specimen, with sharp striking details and flawless surfaces. The toning on this piece is truly extraordinary, and dominates the visual appeal at a glance, in spite of the outstanding quality of the strike and surface condition. Rich, iridescent shades of green, gold, and lilac cover all surfaces to produce a dazzling visual treat. The overwhelming appeal is confirmed by the CAC sticker. From The Bob Simpson Collection.
