Description & Analysis

After years of depression, the economy finally began to recover. Thus, there was once again a need for half dollars in circulation. Production resumed in earnest at the Philadelphia Mint with nearly 7 million coins struck this year. Quality was pretty good, and even above gem the 1934-P Walker is available. In fact, 11 coins have been graded above MS67! (8/2016)
