Still a conditionally challenging issue despite a respectable mintage of 4.6 million pieces, the 1920-S is actually ranked 10th in overall Mint State rarity among the 65 business strikes issues in the Walking Liberty half dollar series (per Jeff Ambio, <em>Collecting & Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars</em>, 2008). A softly frosted BU with few abrasions in evidence, yet slight muting to the luster that is a bit more pronounced on the reverse. Minimally toned, with the typical (for the issue) softness of strike in and around the centers.
