Owner's Comments

2003-S Clad Half Dollar PR70DCAM: First Flight { PCGS-3 } (Dec'2009) Mintage: 111,569 (proof) Sweeping perfect mirrors grace the simple but effective use of cameo devices on this tribute to the Wright Brothers. Wright Monument is located at Kill Devil Hill near Kitty Hawk, NC. This is without a doubt one of the best designs for half dollars in this series, and Flyer One really seems to come to life.
