The magnificent Lulu Collection of Walking Liberty half dollars realized over $971,000 in the Stack's Bowers Galleries June 2021 Costa Mesa Auction, setting a new benchmark for quality and value in this popular Short Set category. A Short Set comprises the second part of the two-folder set for Walking Liberty half dollars produced by Whitman in the mid-20th century. The first folder contained most of the series from 1916 through 1940, with the balance included in the second "shorter" folder. Many decades later, this Short Set format has been embraced by modern collectors and continues to be a highly competitive approach to the series, as demonstrated by the exceptional results in the Stack's Bowers Galleries sale.​
