Lot Description
1926 50C Sesquicentennial MS66 S NGC. Out of 22 MS66 pieces (with none finer) in the combined certified population, 14 of which were graded by NGC, only three have received the Star designation (6/08), suggesting that this is not only one of the best-preserved but also one of the most attractive Sesquicentennial halves in existence. While the strike shows a degree of the usual softness on Washington's head, the overall level of detail is above-average, and the delightfully preserved fields offer uncommonly strong luster beneath subtle rose, blue-green, and silver shadings. Only a few tiny flaws keep this notable coin from an even finer grade.
