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.
