1941-S Walking Liberty Half Dollar. MS-67 (PCGS).Here is an overall brilliant and pearlescent beauty, with just a bit of light peripheral iridescence that is more pronounced on the reverse. Soft satin luster is seen throughout, the strike is razor sharp to full, and the surfaces are as pristine as would be expected for the assigned grade.<p>Struck on the West Coast on the very cusp of World War II, the 1941-S is the undisputed key date issue in the popular Walking Liberty half dollar "short set" of 1941 to 1947. It has a mintage of 8,098,000 pieces, and while not the smallest in the series, the nations burgeoning wartime economy and the tumultuous events of the deadliest conflict in human history resulted in relatively few examples being spared circulation. Even so, enough were preserved to make the 1941-S readily obtainable in Mint State grades below MS-67. At this level the issue is exceedingly rare, the present example tied for finest certified at PCGS. A true prize for the Set Registry participant or other advanced collector of this popular 20th century silver series.PCGS# 6613. NGC ID: 24S5.PCGS Population: 16; 0 finer.
