1921 50C Alabama -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. This is an example of the Plain 1921 Alabama commemorative half dollar. About 10,000 such coins were struck after the initial run of 6,000 pieces with "2x2" in the right obverse field. These half dollars were largely sold to non-collector residents of the state, who wanted examples as souvenirs. Eventually, many representatives were put into circulation. This bright silver Uncirculated half dollar was cleaned as some point, but abrasions are few and far between. Incomplete over the eagle's wing, as is typical, but well struck elsewhere. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
