1920 Liberty Walking Half Dollar. PCGS graded MS-64. We had to study this coin under 14x magnification because at first we thought it was overgraded, but our first impression was wrong and we decided that PCGS got it just right. What's the trouble is a myriad of die-finish lines all over it, which resemble abrasions and even friction. But it's all in the dies, except for some small marks which put this into the MS64 category. The thumb shows but the rest of the hand is mushy. The highest folds of Liberty's gown are unstruck. The color is a pleasing (to these old eyes anyhow) lilac gray with hues of pale gold and a nice silvery background. Good date, as we've stated elsewhere.

Realized $834
