U.S. Walking Liberty Silver Half Dollar 1940-P Very Fine
A magnificent Liberty, clad in the American flag, confidently strides towards a new dawn. On the reverse is a magnificent American Eagle with outstretched wings. This superlative silver half dollar was up for retirement in 1941, but Congress decided to extend the patriotic coin through World War II. Circulation mintages soared in the years following this 1940 issue, with more than five times the production. Our nicely detailed Very Fine quality saw only light circulation at a time when a big silver "Walker" could buy a good lunch or even a dinner.
