Lot Description
1939 50C Arkansas MS66 NGC. After 30% of the mintage of the 1938 Arkansas halves were melted, expectations were lowered considerably for 1939. Only 2,100 sets were offered at $10 per set, making this the key issue in the Arkansas series. The problem-ridden surfaces of the Arkansas series are well known, but this is an especially well-preserved example that shows a smooth face on the conjoined busts on the obverse. The satiny mint luster is covered with a light layer of rose colored toning and the striking details are fully brought up in all areas. Census: 13 in 66, 1 finer (8/06).
