David Hall:

Starting in 1941 mintages for all Walking Liberty half dollars, especially the Philadelphia Mint issues, increase dramatically. As you might expect, survival rates increase because of this and also the fact the more coins were saved as the country came out of the Great Depression and a coin collecting boom began. The 1941 Philadelphia is one of the most common Walking Liberty half dollars in uncirculated and Gem condition. It is a little bit scarcer than the 1942 and 1943 but all three issues are "type" issues that do not sell for a premium price in any grade. The typical 1941 is very sharply struck. Luster can be white and frosty and toning runs from light golden iridescent to dark and dingy with everything in-between.
