Fully struck with equally full mint frost, this lovely Gem exhibits light golden toning that appears to drift toward the borders. There is not a single grade-limiting abrasion and the eye appeal is nothing short of strong.<br />
One of the most popular and eagerly sought issues in the entire Walking Liberty half dollar series, the 1921 has the second lowest mintage of the type at just 246,000 pieces. Writing in the 2008 book <em>Collecting & Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars</em>, Jeff Ambio ranks this issue seventh in overall Mint State rarity for the type and 11th in rarity at or above the MS-65 grade level. Sharp, lustrous and attractive, this expertly preserved Gem is destined to serve as a highlight in another high ranked Walking Liberty half dollar collection on the PCGS Set Registry.
