Lot Description
1919-D 50C MS64 NGC. From a smallish mintage of less than 1.2 million pieces, the 1919-D Walking Liberty half dollar is the most challenging issue of the series in grades above the Choice level. The present coin is an attractive Choice example that shows some of the usually seen softness on the central devices. That being said, some emerging detail is evident on Liberty's thumb and head, and the feathers on the eagle's leg show more definition than the average specimen. The lustrous surfaces display a few hints of light gold toning, with no mentionable distractions. Population: 72 in 64 (1 in 64+), 11 finer (6/12).
