Owner's Comments

O-109A, Rarity 3. From Stack's Nov 10, 2009, The 74th Anniversary Sale, Lot 1359. Listed as: The present coin is graded AU-58 by PCGS and we consider it to be a high-end piece, comparing quite favorably to more than just a few half dollars of this type that are in the Mint State category. Moreover, the obverse is attractive lavender and gray and the reverse is medium gray, with much underlying mint frost. An outstanding coin worthy of a strong bid. Formerly from Heritage's 2006 September Long Beach, CA Signature Auction #416, Lot 1868.
