1925 50C Lexington MS65 NGC. Unlike so many commemorative half dollars issued to "celebrate" various anniversaries of dubious significance, the 1925 Battle of Lexington and Concord half dollars actually memorialize a significant moment in this country's history. The obverse features an archetypal minuteman, while the reverse shows the Old Belfry in Lexington, which sounded the alarm summoning the militia to action upon the arrival of the British forces. Brilliant with radiant frosty luster, this Gem enjoys good definition and minimal field chatter. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
