Description & Analysis

The Philadlelphia Mint's output of half dollars during 1944 fell to nearly half of that the previous year. Quality control was not a high priority during the war years, and many of these coins are found poorly struck from very worn and distorted dies. Nevertheless, gems are common through MS-66, but collectors will want to shop around for a piece that was well struck from fresh dies.

There are no true varieties for 1944(P) half dollars, but some may be found with the "No AW" die state in which the designer's monogram has been polished off the reverse die.
