1918 50C Lincoln MS62 NGC. The Mint celebrated the centennial of Illinois' statehood in 1918 with the production of these half dollars, featuring the contemplative profile of its most famous son, Abraham Lincoln. Up to 100,000 coins were authorized, and every last coin was sold -- a first at that time. Shades of khaki and golden-gray patina provide color to each side. Marks are well-hidden among strongly struck relief features. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
