The first Walking Liberty half dollar issue struck since 1923, the 1927-S saw extensive commercial use and is quite scarce even in lower Mint State grades. A brilliant Choice Unc with only small, wispy abrasions scattered about, this appealing piece is sure to be of keen interest to the advanced collector. There is even some emerging definition to the highpoints -- an uncommon attribute for this often poorly produced issue -- although slight muting to the luster rules out a higher Mint State rating.
