Lot Description
1944-S 50C MS 67 PCGS. The 1944-S owes its conditionally challenging status to indifferent striking quality rather than a poor rate of survival. Mint State examples are generally available, but flatly struck centers keep most coins in the MS 60-65 grade range. A Condition Census offering, this coin is uncommonly well impressed. The surfaces are richly frosted beneath a delicate overlay of golden patina. Crescents of orange iridescence are also noted in select areas around the obverse rim. NGC and PCGS combined report only five coins in MS 67 and none finer (7/00).
