    1938 New Rochelle Half Dollar, SP66
    Rare Specimen Striking

    1938 50C New Rochelle SP66 NGC. CAC. A total of 50 special or "Specimen" strikings of the New Rochelle half dollar were distributed to important members of that community, along with those on the related Coinage Committee and certain individuals connected to the Westchester County Coin Club. While a number of prooflike pieces are known for the issue, this coin sets itself apart for its detail. While most examples have an extremely blurry on the petal midrib of the iris, this piece is sharper there, if not complete on the uppermost element. Extensive die polish lines descend through the flower, a clue to the source of this coin's reflectivity. Census: 6 in SP66, 5 finer (3/14).(Registry values: N991)

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# BYDX, PCGS# 9335)

    Weight: 12.50 grams
