A superb Gem Mint State 1917-D Walking Liberty half dollar, graded MS-66 by PCGS and tied with four others as finest certified by that firm, is just one of many exciting offerings in our upcoming iAuction #3508. The new design type was in its second year when this beauty rolled off the coinage press in Denver, part of a mintage of 765,400 pieces. In 1917 the mintmark also appeared on the reverse, and nearly three times the amount was struck of that style compared to the obverse mintmark style. The iAuction Gem is easily among the best preserved examples of the date extant, and is also one of the most beautiful seen by us recently. The frosty and lustrous silver-gray surfaces exhibit a wealth of deeply varied golden toning, and the overall strike is about as bold as a collector could hope for with full central details on both sides. Our iAuction venue has become one of the most popular ways to buy coins in today’s numismatic marketplace. This coin and all the others offered in iAuction #3508 are available for viewing and bidding at StacksBowers.com. Just post your bid, and maybe this beautiful half dollar will be yours!
