Lot Description
1926 50C Sesquicentennial MS66 PCGS Secure. Ex: Bruce Scher. In an era where a number of commemorative half dollars were issued to mark seemingly minor historical events, the 1926 Sesquicentennial half dollar recalled a truly national event, the July 4, 1776 signing of the Declaration of Independence. This premium Gem is an impressive piece that is tied for the finest certified at PCGS or NGC. Both sides have a base of delicate champagne toning that hosts remarkable variegated iridescence, exhibiting green, pink, and violet. Population: 8 in 66, 0 finer (11/12).
