1923-S 50C Monroe -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. The profiles of James Monroe and John Quincy Adams, both instrumental in the establishment of the Monroe Doctrine, are seen on the obverse. Two female figures represent North and South America on the reverse. Los Angeles had no relevance to the Monroe Doctrine, but rather was the site of the First Annual American Historical Revue and Motion Picture Industry Exposition, where these coins were distributed. Each side is virtually brilliant, save for a few specks of golden-russet color on the obverse. Shimmering luster glows throughout. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
