1942-S自由行走半美元 NGC MS 67
1942-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar. MS-67 (NGC). This incredible coin resonates with full mint frost and luster. The surfaces are as close to perfection as can be imagined. The strike is better than average as Liberty has her thumb just outlined but there are sharp skirt lines below, and the eagles trailing thigh is soft as expected for this San Francisco Mint issue. Undoubtedly one of the very finest known of this date, and a coin of extraordinary beauty and quality that will be an important addition to an advanced registry collection.
Conditionally scarce for this otherwise readily obtainable World War Two era half dollar issue. Trailing only the 1941-S, the 1942-S is the rarest "short set" Walking Liberty half dollar in the finest Mint State grades. With a mintage of 12.7 million coins, the 1942-S half dollar is readily available up through grades of MS-65, but becomes incredibly rare at the Superb Gem level. This MS-67 example is tied at the top of the NGC Census with just 12 other pieces.
