Description & Analysis

The 1937 half dollar is one of the higher-mintage coins in the Walking Liberty series (9.522 million circulation strikes). It is, therefore, fairly easy to locate in most levels of preservation. The population decreases somewhat in Premium Gem and drops precipitously in MS67.
