This boldly lustrous and aesthetically charming branch mint half dollar is alive with rich cartwheel activity and a whisper of faint champagne-gold iridescence. The central strike borders on full -- not completely struck up but with enough details to warrant mention. The 1917-D Obverse Mintmark variety has the lowest mintage figure of any of the mintmarked varieties of the date. A pleasing Gem and a coin that will fit perfectly into any high-grade set.
