1917-S Reverse 50C MS65 PCGS
CAC Sticker. Rare at the Gem level and prohibitive any finer. Bathed in frosty white luster with a textured satin frost as always seen on these 1916 and 1917 half dollars. The strike is reasonably sharp with just a hint of softness on the central devices, common to this design. Of course the most important feature is the quality of the surfaces, which display on the faintest signs of contact. Hints of golden-russet toning are forming around the rims. PCGS has seen 40 examples (at most) at this level, with another 8 a point finer with the mintmark placed on the reverse. Population: 40, 8 finer (MS66+ finest). (PCGS 6573)
