Adolph A. Weinman’s design of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar is arguably one of the most beautiful designs used on a U.S. silver coin.
Walking Liberty Halves were made in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco from 1916 to 1947.
This fabulous first year 'Walker' displays rich cream white luster over silky smooth, nearly mark-free surfaces. The strike is very sharp with full head detail, thumb separation, and strong skirt lines. The reverse is equally sharp and the overall eye appeal is outstanding.
Stunning blast white luster and a great strike. Fantastic eye appeal and just a couple of trivial marks away from perfection.
CAC. Well struck with lots of white luster and just the barest touch of 'rub'.
Frosty white luster and a solid strike. An attractive example of this tough date.
CAC. Intense brilliant mint luster with just a trace of gold and a lot of 'flash'! The strike is very strong and the surfaces show minimal abrasions.
Well struck with rich mint luster that is brilliant in the center with russet-gold toning developing to the rim. Refreshingly original and very attractive.
Well struck with light silver-gray, lustrous surfaces. Nearly mint state.
Very well struck and lustrous with a faint golden hue. Premium quality for the grade.
A touch of weakness in the center but much better struck than this scarce date usually comes. The luster is vibrant and white with beautiful surfaces that are nearly mark-free. Only a handful have graded better and they bring multiples of what we're asking for this lovely coin.
Very well struck with pleasing surfaces and brilliant mint luster. A scarce date in MS-64 with anything finer being prohibitively expensive.
CAC. A wonderful mint state example of this scarce date. The luster is rich and full with a very light touch of golden-green toning. The peripheral is very well struck with a bit of softness at the center as is typical for the date. This is the only MS-63 CAC has approved and certainly the outstanding eye appeal this coin processes must have helped it garner that status!
Here's a magnificent Gem example of one of the rarest 'Walker' dates in mint state condition. This coin exhibits rich brilliant luster with smooth surfaces that reveal only a very few miniscule marks. The strike is particularly sharp for this date which is plagued with softly struck coins. For the advanced collector who has waited for a truly exceptional example of this scarce date!
