Incredible Superb Gem 1946 Walking Liberty Half Dollar

Just 1 Finer at PCGS and CAC

This amazing Superb Gem is exceptionally well preserved and borders on flawless. Lovely mint luster flows over serene surfaces, and both sides are enhanced by delicate iridescent toning in sandy-gold, with hints of sea-green and orange at the obverse borders. Boldly to sharply struck, and sure to please even the most discerning Walking Liberty half dollar enthusiasts. It ranks among the very finest survivors known and just a single coin sits higher at PCGS and CAC. A similar MS-67+ (PCGS) CAC sold for $15,600 in our August 2021 sale of the Lulu Collection.

Writing in the 2008 book Collecting & Investing Strategies for Walking Liberty Half Dollars, Jeff Ambio describes the 1946 as, “an underrated issue” and “the rarest Walking Liberty half dollar struck in the Philadelphia Mint from 1941 to 1947.” Of the 12,118,000 struck, less than 0.2% survive in Gem condition. Approval by CAC confirms the superior quality of the present offering, and it is certainly among the most desirable examples of this issue available to quality-conscious collectors. A true crowning jewel for an advanced cabinet or Registry Set.
