Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint's production of half dollars in 1939 advanced about 50% of 1938's small figure, and this was a reflection of returning economic activity following the severe recession of 1937-38. This issue is plentiful through the grade of MS-67.

A nice doubled-die obverse variety is known for 1939(P) halves, and this is attributed by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.
