Lot Description
1940 50C PR68 NGC. 1940 half dollars in this lofty grade level are few and far between. NGC and PCGS combined have seen only 81 such pieces, and none finer (4/12). Excellent strike definition throughout, including Liberty's face and left thumb and the eagle's left leg. Pastels of lime-green, crimson, and gold-brown streak across the obverse, while whispers of powder-blue and light tan visit the reverse. Close examination of each side reveals no mentionable marks. Census: 50 in 68, 0 finer (4/12).
