Country: United States
A nice solid example of this early Half Dollar date. One of the more obvious varieties, easily identified by the large die lump to the right of the "5" in the date. On the Reverse, the "A" in STATES is recut over an errantly entered "E". Scarcer overall, extremely so above Very Good to Fine; PCGS CoinFacts calls this an R-6. Also not often offered for public sale - the finest PCGS coin sold at auction was a Fine-15, despite there being about a dozen coins certified in higher grades. This indicates that almost all trade by private treaty to customers on want lists. Not any real premium in this grade, so you get rarity at a discount. PCGS Population in Good-4 of only 3 coins when listed(64 in all circulated grades after 30+ years of grading - not a lot).
