Silver Half Dollars the coolest coin?

The Walking Liberty Silver Coin One half Dollar was designed by artist Adolph A. Weinman during 1916AD not to mention was struck in 1916 AD thru 1945. It weighs 12 and 1/2 grams, 30.6 mm diameter, as well as 1.8mm thick. It is made of 90 percent silver and also 10 percent copper plus struck from: Denver (mark of mint D), San Francisco (mint marked S), as well as Philadelphia (showing no mark of mintage). This Edge is serrated.walking liberty half dollar, walking liberty half dollar, walking liberty half

Its heads will have walking Liberty bringing branches looking left and the US flag over Liberty's back. A sun that has rays will be on the lower left as well as the year has been centered directly below Liberty. The Moto will be at the right in addition to “LIBERTY” encircles the top of this silver coinage. The layout had been adjusted for use on the heads for the '86 American Silver Eagle silver dollar coin that is also being produced. its mint marks in 1916AD had been found beneath the “TR” from the “In God We Trust” mote. A marks of the mint had been moved to the tails for 1917, however many of the 1917 AD silver coins are below the "TR" on the heads.

This back portrays the walking American bald eagle facing left with opened wings along with one modest tree to the left. A denomination; “HALF DOLLAR” is written along the rim underneath the bald eagle. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” will be indicated surrounding on top. “E PLURIBUS UNUM” is on its left by this bald eagle. In 1917 AD a mark of its mint are at times placed below its tree and in 1918 AD to 1947 every mint marks were found underneath this tree.

Adolph A. Weinman had been a sculptor as a profession. During 1915 AD US Mint Director Robert W. Wolley assumed he wanted different patterns for the 1 / 2 dollar coin, quarter, as well as dime. Weinman ended up being dissatisfied with those submitted from its mints engravers then requested 3 artists for pattern proposals. Weinman’s was selected for the one half dollar coin, and a ten cent silver coin. United States of America Mint engrave George T. Morgan (designer of the Morgan dollar) assisted Weinman during 1918AD with various design concerns.

Even though this is a much loved pattern both Liberty and the bald eagle present wear as ‘Very Fine’ shape. This had been a situation of which they tried to fix during the years of striking by carving directly into the hub which makes each primary dies. It appears to be wise to examine its text to distinguish which grades regarding 'PR' to 'G'. Regarding ‘VG’ thru ‘XF consider the eagles’ wing plus Liberty’s branches. In general, these relief is going to match to the general use description.

The Walking Liberty 1/2 Dollar silver coins series with its few valuable errors. The '28 S with its large as well as little marks of the mint type. This silver coinage boasts key mint dates. One is a 1921 AD Denver Colorado (246 thousand minted) as well as Philly (208 thousand produces).
