Lot Description
1921 50C Missouri MS65 NGC. Original deep golden-brown and powder-blue patina enriches this satiny Gem. Intense scrutiny of the surfaces fails to reveal even a single remotely relevant abrasion, and the strike is bold aside from the frontiersman's cheek. The mintage of 20,428 pieces is relatively low for an early silver commemorative type, and nearly half of those coins had 2x4 in the field, constituting a separate issue. Many examples were spent or otherwise abused, and Gems are far more elusive than commemorative issues from the thirties with similar mintages.
