|Title||1921 50C Pilgrim, MS|
|Service Catalog #||9360|
1921 50C Pilgrim -- Obverse Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Half dollars commemorating the Pilgrims' landing at Plymouth Rock in 1620 were struck 300 years later in 1920 and again in 1921. The latter issue, from which this piece derives, claims a much smaller distribution than its earlier counterpart (20,053 coins versus 150,112 coins). Unsurprisingly, the 1921 is the scarcer of the two. Bright surfaces are softly frosted and minimally hairlined. The devices are unworn and well-struck. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
