David Hall:

The 1917-S on Reverse Walking Liberty half dollar is the highest mintage of the four Denver and San Francisco mint Walkers of 1917 and it's the easiest to find in GD and VG condition. But like all early Walkers, this date is scarce in grades Fine and above. Mint state examples are very scarce and Gems are rare.
