Lot Description
1939 50C MS68 PCGS. Iridescent olive and pale orange toning endows this lustrous and splendidly smooth Superb Gem. The strike is about as sharp as can be found on a Walking Liberty half, since the head and skirt lines are fully brought up, and even the index finger of the branch hand has good definition. Encapsulated in a first-generation holder. Just seven examples of this issue have received the MS68 grade at PCGS since we last offered this identical coin in November 2007. Population: 24 in 68, 0 finer (4/11). Ex: Charlotte ANA Sale (Heritage, 3/2007), lot 1088; Milwaukee ANA Sale (Heritage, 8/2007), lot 1104; Houston Signature Sale (Heritage (11/2007), lot 61013.
