Lot Description
1937-S 50C Arkansas MS67 PCGS. Ex: JFS Collection. Golden-brown and baby-blue hues enrich the peripheries, while the remainder of the obverse is essentially untoned and the central reverse features faint lilac color. A suitably struck and shimmering Superb Gem with pleasing preservation and outstanding eye appeal. Originally issued only as part of a PDS set, just 5,506 1937-S Arkansas halves were produced. High grade survivors are very rare, much of which has to do with the design. Liberty's cheek is especially prone to distracting marks, although the present piece is exemplary in this regard. From The Sonoma Collection.
