1921 Walking Liberty Half Dollar. MS-65 (NGC).Brilliant and pearly white, this is a lovely example of a fabled key date 20th century silver issue. Both sides are fully endowed with vibrant, softly frosted mint luster. The strike is as close to full as one could realistically expect in an early date Walking Liberty half dollar, and the surfaces are virtually distraction free and solidly graded at the Gem level.<p>This prized rarity has always been in high demand, as the low mintage of 246,000 pieces pointed early attention to these, but not until most had already entered circulation. Demand for new half dollars was low that year as the world economy adjusted sharply reflecting the changes from war driven production to peacetime activities as World War I had concluded a few years prior. Of those 1921 half dollars saved, not many retain the Gem level surfaces desired by many collectors so pricing pressure has always been rather high when a Gem does appear on the market. With precious few certified finer by both PCGS and NGC, this is an exceptional example of this key date and destined for a high end cabinet or Registry Set.PCGS# 6583. NGC ID: 24R6.NGC Census: 32; 2 finer (both MS-66).
