Expert Comments

David Hall: This issue, along with the 1947 Philadelphia, is the last year of issue of the Walking Liberty half dollar. Last year of issues are often saved in quantity and this one certainly was, though most of the 1941 to 1947 issues were saved by the roll as well. This issue is in the middle of the rarity for the 1941 to 1947 Denver issues in MS64 and MS65 condition, but it the rarest of the seven D Mints of the 1940s in MS66 or better condition. The typical mint state specimen has white luster and is well struck.
