Lot Description
1923-S 50C Monroe MS67 PCGS. CAC. The Monroe Doctrine commemorative was struck for a Los Angeles exposition despite the city's tenuous connection with the event. These halves are quite plentiful in circulated grades, but are a significant condition rarity in Mint State. They are virtually always seen weakly struck, and while this piece is no exception to that rule, it does exhibit uncommonly brilliant luster throughout. An attractive medley of gold, light blue, and silver-gray is seen across the carefully preserved surfaces. Seldom offered in such a lofty state of preservation. Population: 4 in 67, 0 finer (6/09). From The Louis Bassano Collection of U.S. Commemoratives.
