Lot Description
1941-S 50C MS67 NGC. Weak strikes, numerous heavy abrasions, and poor eye appeal all plague 1941-S half dollars. Bruce Fox (1993) writes: "The upper gown lines and Liberty's hand, as well as the eagle's breast, are rarely found detailed." While somewhat less than fully struck, the present Superb Gem ranks head and shoulders above most-seen '41-S specimens. Partial detail is visible on the branch hand, and Liberty's head and gown lines and the eagle's breast are strongly defined. The radiantly lustrous surfaces are untoned and remarkably devoid of mentionable surface or rim marks. All in all, this piece generates "superb" eye appeal. Census: 17 in 67, 0 finer (4/12).
