Lot Description
1939 50C MS68 PCGS. CAC. The 1939 Walking Liberty half dollar is a common issue in the context of the series, and yet this is an extremely uncommon example of it, one of those few nestled at the extreme top end of the Condition Census. PCGS has seen 23 submissions at the MS68 grade level--a grade that any series aficionado will agree is limited to only the most extraordinary survivors--and, as expected, there are none finer (1/11). This exceptional coin is fully struck, with pale lilac and golden color that is a bit deeper at the margins. Most of each side shows some degree of color. A conditionally rare treasure that should please the fussiest Registry Set or type collector.
