Lot Description
1921 50C Alabama 2x2 MS67 PCGS. Although the 2x2 issue was better produced than its No 2x2 counterpart, it is nonetheless unusual to find any Alabama Half Dollar with the sharpness of strike seen on the present Superb Gem. The eagle's plumage on the legs and body is fully brought up by the dies, and only the right (facing) claw lacks pinpoint definition. Just 6,006 pieces were struck with 2x2 on the dies, the extra six pieces intended for assay. The X represents the St. Andrews cross from the state flag; the gimmick of adding the state number to create an additional low mintage variety was also used by the 1921 Missouri type. Lightly toned in apricot, lilac, and sea-green hues, this lustrous and splendidly preserved piece merits its status as one of the finest certified Alabama 2x2 Halves. Population: 4 in 67, 0 finer (1/05). From the Bruce Scher #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.
