Description & Analysis

Coined during the peak of America's wartime production, the 1943(P) half dollar had the highest mintage of this series. In fact, another 20 years would pass before this record for a single mint was exceeded. Gems are plentiful through MS-67, but collectors should still exercise discretion in selecting a coin that was well struck from fresh dies.

Most 1943 half dollars from all three mints display similar obverse doubling, and this was likely the result of a doubled working hub or even a doubled master die. This leads to the submission of many 1943-dated half dollars for variety attribution, but such doubling is not acknowledged by NGC due to its commonness.

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.
