Lot Description
1935-S 50C San Diego MS68 S NGC. Though San Francisco coined the entire authorized mintage of 250,000 San Diego halves plus assay examples, nearly 180,000 1935-S coins were melted as unsold and recoined at the Denver Mint as 1936-D pieces. Waves of copper-orange, lime-green, and steel-blue toning wash over the highly lustrous surfaces, and a few small areas of the reverse display a hint of near-brilliance. While NGC has graded four coins as MS68, this is the only one awarded the Star designation, with none finer (4/07). From The Cary & Cheryl Porter Collection.
