Gerald Forsythe Collection
David Hall: The 1935 is one of the more common Walking Liberty half dollars of the 1930s, due undoubtedly to its relatively high mintage and the fact that at the time Philadelphia issues were saved more than the Denver and San Francisco Mint issues. The 1935 is rarer in Gem condition than the 1936, 1937, and 1939, but it is definitely available. Superb Gems, i.e. MS67 coins, are very rare for this issue.
The typical 1935 has white frosty luster and this coin defintitely comes nice. Strike is a little bit weaker than the P-Mints that follow, and weaker than the 1934 for that matter, a fact that is probably the reason for this coin's rarity in MS67 condition.
