Lot Description
1953-S 50C Washington-Carver MS67 NGC. Gilroy Roberts was the engraver responsible for making this Isaac Scott Hathaway design coinage-ready, and while the design is not a favorite of most numismatic aesthetes, credit must be given to Roberts for his efforts. The Superb Gem offered here is more than presentable, with potent luster that shines beneath silver-gray patina in the centers and bronze-tan toning at the rims. Census: 5 in 67, 3 in 67 S, 0 finer (11/07).
