First year of issue for the Denver Mint Walking Liberty Half Dollar series, the 1916-D is also one of only two issues of the type to display the D mintmark on the obverse. A conditionally scarce Gem, the present example is satiny and smooth with mottled golden-russet patina. Sharply struck and free of distracting abrasions. Among early date Walkers, the 1916-D is rarer in Gem Mint State than the 1916 and 1917.
