Description:
Gleaming Superb Gem 1921 Alabama Half
1921 50C Alabama MS67 NGC. Although Alabama celebrated the centennial of its statehood in 1919, commemoratives were not struck to mark the occasion for another two years. These pieces are particularly noteworthy as the first U.S. coins to feature a living person: T.E. Kilby, the governor at the time of the centennial.
Intense satiny luster shimmers across the bright silver-gray surfaces of the present coin, which has numerous striations throughout the fields. A careful examination with a loupe reveals only a few nearly microscopic abrasions. Just a touch of weakness on the eagle, as often seen, keeps this remarkable specimen from an even higher grade. Census: 7 in 67, 0 finer (6/10).
Ex: The Louis Bassano Collection of U.S. Commemoratives (Heritage, 7/2009), lot 1389, which realized $10,350.
(Registry values: N7079) (NGC ID# 28HT, PCGS# 9224)
