1919-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar. MS-62 (PCGS). A bit lightly struck in the centers, the only other significant detractions are a few light grazes in the right-obverse field. Billowy mint frost is suitably lustrous for the grade, and the outward appearance is also uncommonly bold at the lower reaches of Mint State. An appealing BU representative of the key-date 1919-D, which is actually the third-rarest Walker in terms of total number of Mint State coins believed extant (this ranking per Jeff Ambio, <em>Collecting & Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars</em>, 2008).
