Description & Analysis

After a suspension of eight years half dollar production resumed at the Denver Mint in 1929. Demand for this denomination in the Midwest remained limited, and many of these coins were not distributed until the mid 1930s. Just as with the dimes and quarters dated 1929-D, there were small hoards of Mint State coins being traded for years afterward, making this issue more available than its mintage would suggest.

Better struck than the S-Mint halves of the 1920s, the 1929-D is still scarce with a full strike. Gems are fairly plentiful, though these range broadly in their sharpness.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
