Lot Description
1921 50C Alabama 2x2 MS67 NGC. For the 2x2 Alabama variety, just eight coins are tied at the MS67 level for numerically finest in the combined certified population (6/10), and this Superb Gem is one of the three NGC representatives. The luster is attractive, if not unusually bold for the issue; similarly, the level of detail is pleasing, if not a radical departure from the norm. The truly remarkable aspects of this coin are its patina, gold and blue with strong reddish-brown elements at parts of the borders, and its great overall preservation. The only abrasion deserving individual attention is a thin line just above Kilby's mouth.
