1921-D Liberty Walking Half Dollar. PCGS graded MS-62. Popular key date. Frosty white. Pop 19. A one-in-a-thousand example of this Denver issue, with original luster that shimmers over choice surfaces. One of the keys of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar series, the 1921-D has the lowest mintage of its type with a mere 208,000 coins struck. Walter Breen's research indicates that two die pairs were used to coin these Halves. The first pair produced 165,000 examples, the second pair 92,672 for a total of 257,672 pieces. Apparently 49,672 coins never left the mint and may have been melted, resulting in the net mintage figure of 208,000 given above. This coin is logically scarce, therefore, in grades above Very Fine, and Mint State pieces are downright elusive, this, the result of very few being saved from the channels of commerce (PCGS # 6584) .
Estimated Value $4,000 - 4,500.

Realized $9,200
