Owner's Comments

Expert Comments

David Hall: The 1940 is the rarest of the Philadelphia Mint Walking Liberty half dollars of the 1940s, but it isn't very difficult to locate even in Gem condition. This issue is usually very sharply struck and there are many Superb Gems known with either pure white luster or beautiful iridescent light gold toning.
