An attractive 1917 Philadelphia strike with partial antique gold patina on both sides. Frosty cartwheel luster is a bit muted by the thick crusty patina.

Choice New Price
Mintmark on Obverse, Lovely Second Year Issue, Light Creamy Gold Patina, Choice Original Surfaces, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Accurately Graded, Twins Lakes Collection. A thoroughly satisfying example of second year Denver strike with mintmark on obverse. Frosty luster is most pleasing as are the vibrant cartwheels. Strike is well executed with fully formed thumb and hand along with strong head details. Blemish wise, there is a struck through defect by the T in LIBERTY as made. This defect does not impact the GFRC quality rating as this offering is choice original. Housed in old blue label PCGS holder with standard ring insert. PCGS label reads, "Obverse". Yet more quality offerings from the Twins Lakes Collection to consider.
Walking Liberty 50C 1939S 1939-S
PCGS Doily
New March 18! Frosty, Well Struck, Gen 2.0 Doily Holder, CAC.. The 1939-S is a lower mintage issue within the Walker series, and examples at the uncirculated level are more elusive than those of common dates within the set. CAC has awarded 525 "green beans" to 1939-S halves, and, although a large number, this represents only a small portion (12%) of the total graded by PCGS and NGC. This well-struck example is completely brilliant with traces of silver highlighting LIberty's gown. From the Jim Poston collection and residing in a PCGS 1989 Gen2.0 Doily Holder.
Walking Liberty 50C 1940 1940
Gem Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Light Gold Patina, Old Time Grading, Osprey Collection. Don't I enjoy adding Walking Liberty halves to the GFRC price list when conservatively graded in ANACS old white holders. This lovely 1840 Philadelphia strike is a no question gem. Frosty cartwheel luster is so vibrant while strike is full. Light golden patina provides eye appeal that is heads and shoulders above blast white dipped examples. A gem offering from the Osprey Collection that is worth special consideration.
Walking Liberty 50C 1941 1941
Gem $275 Gem Original, Bold Luster and Strike, Rim Toning. I really like this 1941 Philadelpha walker as it offers the best of all worlds....first the strike is complete with full head and all vertical gown lines being present. Second is the booming luster since this piece was struck from die with considerable erosion results in metal flow lines on the coin. And finally, the eye appeal with the pretty ebony/gold rim toning. Housed in early ANACS old white holder. Please pay special attention to this example.
Walking Liberty 50C 1941 1941
Gem $140 Gem Original, Frosty Cartwheel Luster, Light Gold at Rims, Old Time Grading, Osprey Collection. A gorgeous 1941 Philadelphia half with natural surfaces that provides bold frosty cartwheel luster. The intense luster and old time coloring screams originality. Housed in ANACS old white holder and yet another super offering from the Osprey Collection.
Walking Liberty 50C 1942 1942
Gem $795 New March 18! Gold CAC, Old Green Holder, Pristine Surfaces, Brilliant Proof.. Always a favorite in the 20th century type series, Walker halves are even more appealing in proof format. This untoned example features watery mirrors with no hairlines, and the strike is complete as on most proofs. Note: a few scuffs in the lower reverse are on the holder. Housed in a PCGS Gen 3.0 holder (1990-1993), and from the Jim Poston colleciton.
Walking Liberty 50C 1942 1942
Choice HOLD
Attractive Golden Toning, Complete Strike and Head, Accurately Graded, Saco River Collection. When I first picked up this 1942 Walker, the hammered strike immediately jumped out at me. This offering has a complete head with ear hole behind the full curls, completely defined right thumb and all vertical gown lines being completely distinct. One could not ask for a better strike. Surfaces are covered with semi transparent gold patina and emit satiny luster under a bright light. Definitely an out of the ordinary piece as compared to the hundreds of partially struck blast white examples on the market. At GFRC, original toning is paramount. Housed in 2015 style PCGS holder. A top quality offering from the Saco River Collection.
Walking Liberty 50C 1943D 1943-D
PCGS Doily
Gem $595 New March 18! Gold CAC, Frosty, Well Struck, Doily Holder.. This predominatly brilliant Walker exhibits russet toning in the right obverse field, with less intense olive toning on the opposite side. CAC has granted gold-bean status to only six 1943-D halves, and this boldly-struck coin is tied with two others as the highest-graded gold exanple. This piece is housed in a PCGS 1989 Gen2.0 Doily Holder and comes from the Jim Poston collection.
Walking Liberty 50C 1945 1945

Walking Liberty 50C 1946S 1946-S
New March 18! Just Buy It Now, Frosty, Aweseomly Toned, Gold CAC.. Frosty centers give way to magnificent, bullseye rim toning that progresses from russet to deep blue at the rims. CAC has gold stickered only 13 1946-S Walkers, with just a single coin graded higher than this example, a lone MS66. The strike is typical, with some weakness in the eagle's feathers. Even so, we unhesitatingly assign the GFRC "JUST BUY IT NOW" rating to this piece. This is a wonder coin that will impress even the most grizzled coin veterans, one of our consignor's favorites that won't last long. From the Seal Beach Collection. PCGS Gen 4.0 holder (1998-2002).
Walking Liberty 50C 1947D 1947-D
Gem $280 Gem Original, Antique Gray Patina, Bold Luster. After looking at so many dipped white Walkers, it is a pleasure to acquire an example with distinctive character. Both obverse and reverse are covered with in hand antique gray patina over a huge mint luster bloom. The reverse rim toning well frames the eagle. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder.
