Lot Description
1921 Alabama Centennial. Plain. MS-66 (PCGS). CAC. A lovely example of this early commemorative type. The smooth, unabraded surfaces exhibit satin luster and light ivory-beige color in the centers. The peripheries are enhanced by multicolored iridescent toning.&nbsp;The centennial was actually observed in 1919, but the commemorative was turned out two years later, making it historically irrelevant. This is one of <em>many</em> such anomalies in the commemorative series, adding a great deal to their numismatic interest.
