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.
