Lot Description
1940 50C MS68 PCGS. CAC. The 1940 half is an available date with a mintage exceeding 9 million pieces. PCGS and NGC combined have certified a few thousand examples through MS66. The population drops in MS67, and the two services have seen only about 36 MS68 coins, along with a single MS69 at NGC. Dazzling luster radiates from the light tan and ice-blue surfaces of this MS68 PCGS piece. A solid strike manifests itself in sharp definition on the gown lines and Liberty's right (facing) hand. Immaculate preservation shows on both sides. Population: 24 in 68, 0 finer (7/11). Ex: Summer FUN Signature (Heritage, 7/2007), lot 1064, which realized $8,050. From The Oliver Collection.
