Subtle golden iridescence blankets smartly impressed, fully frosted features. Overall smooth and, in fact, uncommonly abrasion free in an example of this final year Walking Liberty half dollar issue. Jeff Ambio (<em>Collecting & Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars</em>, 2008) describes the 1947-D as rarer than the 1941-D, 1943-D, 1944-D, 1945-D and 1946-D in Gem and Superb Gem grades. In NGC MS-67 the present example is among the finest certified.
