Liberty Walking Half Dollar. 1921-S. PCGS graded MS-64 PQ. Shimmering fields and mark-free surfaces are graced with rich, gem quality luster on both sides. This beauty's strike is significantly stronger than seen on most, as evidenced by a glance at the head and hand detail. The typically seen weakness on Liberty's gown was spared from any nicks or hits, which are routinely seen near the chest and on the legs. Key rarity of the Walking Liberty Series in uncirculated condition and a mintage of only 548,000 (5th lowest for the series). Demand has consistenly outpaced the limited supply of the '21-S and this will most likely be the continuing trend for the future. The strike quality of this piece is apparently a tad better than that of the Ally Collection example (Heritage; New York Signature, 6/20002, Lt # 8528, PCGSMS65) and close to that of the Nicholas Collection example (Heritage; Central States, 5/2004, Lot # 7646, PCGSMS65) This specimen has true gem potential and a light "dipping" or trip for "conservation"would be the prudent step to take before resubmitting this piece for the MS65 grade (PCGS # 6585) .
Estimated Value $30,000 - 40,000.

Realized $46,000
