1939 50C MS64 Certification #21604243, PCGS #6606

Expert Comments

David Hall

The 1939 is the most available of all the 1930s Walking Liberty half dollars. It has been available by the uncircualted roll in the past and there are many superb gem examples in existence. That said, this issue is rarer than the Philadelphia issues of the 1940s. While coins were definitely being saved by the roll in 1939, mintages for the 1940s issues were much higher and roll "saving" was in full force in the 1940s. The typical 1939 is very well struck. Luster can by frosty white and there are also many lightly golden toned iridescent gems.
