1925-S 50C California -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. The quintessential icons of California grace both sides of this coin, issued to commemorative the 75th anniversary of the state's admission into the Union in 1850. The obverse depicts a Gold Rush prospector panning for gold. A grizzly bear, the state emblem, appears on the reverse. Although cleaned at some point many years ago, the surfaces have since developed pleasing peripheral rainbow toning. Notably free of major abrasions. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
