Lot Description
1945-S 50C MS67 PCGS. Knob S. Finding a nice Gem 1945-S Walking Liberty half will be an easier task than locating a comparable 1942-S, 1943-S, or 1944-S, but a Superb Gem 1945-S is truly a conditional rarity, a level where PCGS has seen only 13 submissions (with likely duplications thrown in). The frosty silver-white surfaces of this MS67 PCGS-graded piece show just a slight blush of toning, almost imperceptible. The head is decently well-struck, but the branch hand is weak, as usual on the issue. The reverse is a bit soft on the eagle's right (facing) leg but well-detailed elsewhere, and contact marks are at a minimum on both sides.
