1921 Alabama Half PCGS MS64 SOLD
1921 Alabama Half PCGS MS64
Although the Alabama Centennial Commemorative Half Dollar is dated 1921, the coin was authorized by Congress in 1920 for a centennial celebration that took place in 1919. Two varieties of this commemorative half were issued: with “2x2” counterstamped into the obverse field and without the “2x2” counterstamp. This example the 1921 Alabama Commemorative Half Dollar is graded MS64 by PCGS and does not have the 2x2 counterstamp. The obverse features the images of the first Governor of Alabama, William Wyatt Bibb, and the then current Governor, T.E. Kilby. According to The Official Red Book of U.S. Coins, this coin is the first instance of the use of a living person’s portrait on a United States coin. The reverse of the coin has a really strong looking eagle atop a shield. This example of the coin has amazing eye appeal. The coin has lovely toning on both the obverse and reverse, mostly around the rims and quite colorful. The coin also has nice luster on both sides and only a few small marks on the high points of the design, easily appropriate for the assigned grade. Overall, this coin has nice overall eye appeal that is well above what you see on an average Alabama Half Dollar.
