1920 Pilgrim Half PCGS MS65+ SOLD
1920 Pilgrim Half PCGS MS65+
The 1920 Pilgrim Tercentenary Commemorative Half Dollar commemorated the 300th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1620. The obverse shows an image of William Bradford who was the governor of the Plymouth Colony. The reverse shows a really impressive rendition of the Mayflower which seems to be of relatively high-relief. This 1920 Pilgrim Tercentenary Commemorative Half Dollar has been graded MS65+ by PCGS and is encapsulated in the newer-style edge-view holder. The obverse of this coin has medium golden toning and decent overall luster, only slightly muted by the toning. Just a few light marks can be found on the surfaces, none of which distract. The reverse has less toning and stronger luster, really showing off the strongly struck Mayflower design. I am not certain why the coin was limited to a grade of MS65+ and did not grade higher, other than the slightly muted obverse luster caused by the toning and perhaps a few small hits on the rim which would have been hidden in an older non-edge-view holder. In any event, this coin is a very nice gem+ example of the Pilgrim Half Dollar.
