David Hall: The 1943 is the highest mintage Walking Liberty half dollar and it is also the most common. It is readily available in mint state condition, including the Gem MS65 and better grades. So this issue is basically a type issue. The 1943 is often found with great original frosty luster and strike is never a problem.
