Lot Description
1953-S 50C Washington-Carver MS67 PCGS. Absolutely gorgeous turquoise-blue and crimson-red color overlays each side of this well made Gem, which also exhibits hints of orange patina, near the center of the reverse. A few minor contact marks are seen on G.W. Carver's portrait, and on the map on the reverse. Some "as made" elements of the coin include a few wispy die polish lines, on each side, and some chatter on Carver's cheek, the result of striking incompleteness. Conditionally rare at the MS67 grade level. Population at both services, combined: 6 in 67, 0 finer (6/04). From the JFS Collection, the #1 All-Time PCGS Registry Set.
