Expert Comments

David Hall

In Choice Uncirculated condition, the 1946 is the rarest of the 1941 to 1947 Walking Liberty half dollars, though the 1947 is a close second. As in the case with all Philadelphia Walkers, strike is not a problem with this issue. There are many very frosty, fully lustrous Gems.
