Frosty and lustrous with lively cartwheel activity. Nicely struck for the date with just a touch of weakness at Liberty's hand and cap. The second of two years in the denomination with an obverse mintmark location; 1917-D and 1917-S half dollars also come with mintmark on the reverse. From a mintage of 952,000 pieces, and one of nine dates in the series with a production run of fewer than 1 million pieces.
