Lot Description
1919 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. MS-66 (PCGS). CAC. OGH. Bright and lustrous with a whisper of faint rose iridescence. Nicely struck with essentially full cap and hand details on the obverse; the eagle's plumage is likewise crisply presented. One of nine dates in the series with a mintage that dips below the million coin mark&mdash;in this case 962,000 pieces were struck. The 1919 takes on key date status in the series above EF, with Gems of the nature offered here in the definite minority of survivors. Indeed, fewer than a half dozen examples of the date have been graded finer than the present specimen. A grand opportunity awaits! <iframe src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/uiNSv31xT14" frameborder="0" width="560" height="349"></iframe>
