David Hall:

The 1939-D is by far the most available Denver Mint Walker of the 1930s. The 1939-D is about the same rarity as the 1939 in uncirculated condition, but is somewhat rarer than the 1939 in superb gem MS66 or better condition. There are many highly lustrous white gems of this issue. Strike is usually fairly sharp with an occasional very light weakness on Ms. Liberty's left thumb. This coin comes nice!
