Lot 1225

1917-S Liberty Walking Half Dollar. Mint mark on reverse. PCGS graded MS-64. The cataloguer likes this coin quite a lot because it has a real original feel to it. Black flecks all around the edges, with some golden hues, indicate that it probably lay for many years in a drawer or box, outside of collectors' hands. Its surfaces have a silvery look, rather than being too bright. Liberty's leg and the eagle are a bit soft in strike, but that is part and parcel with this S-mint date. The mintmark is really sharp.
Manufactured just as America was entering its first international war of any size; the times, they would get tougher! This is a great memento of the era.

Realized $1,553
