Owner's Comments

Expert Comments

David Hall: The 1942-D is fairly common in uncirculated and Gem condition. However, it is the scarcest of the 1941-1947 Denver Mint Walking Liberty half dollars. Strike is not a problem with this issue and most show sharp detail. Many frosty fully lustrous specimens survive.
