Description & Analysis

1936 was the first year in which proof coins were struck since 1915. Because of this, many ended up in the possession of non-numismatists who did not take proper care of the coins. This means that many 1936 proof Walkers show signs of mishandling. As with all Walking Liberty half dollar proofs, most have little to no cameo contrast, especially on the sun.
