Expert Comments

David Hall

This issue, along with the 1947-D, was the last year of issue for the Walking Liberty half dollar. The 1947 was certainly saved and it is readily available in uncirculated condition. However, this issue is scarcer than the 1941 to 1945 Philadelphia issue and is quite a bit scarcer in Superb MS66 or better condition. The typical mint state example has frosty luster and a good strike.
