Mostly brilliant silver surfaces with soft champagne accents intensifying somewhat toward the rims. As often seen on early Denver Mint Mint products on this issue, the strike is rather soft through the centers. However, this "as made" characteristic seems to have been considered in the grade as the piece seems more mark-free than we would typically expect to find for the assigned grade level. Technically a very nice example in Choice Mint State.<br /> <strong style="font-weight: bold;">Numismatic Reflections by Q. David Bowers<br /> </strong>A lovely Walking Liberty half dollar, just right in that it is high enough to be very attractive and desirable for an advanced collection, but not in an ultra grade that might require mortgaging the farm (or condo) to buy it.
