Description & Analysis

Half dollar production declined a bit at the Denver Mint during 1944-45, though the figures were still high within the context of the overall Walking Liberty series. The typical 1944-D half dollar displays good luster and strike, though fully struck examples are scarce for every date/mint in the series, this one included. Certified gems are plentiful through MS-67.

A minor RPM variety is known for 1944-D, but it has received little interest from collectors. More attention and demand exists for the one reverse die on which the designer's monogrammed "AW" has been restore by hand engraving. This shallow design feature was easily obliterated whenever a worker refinished the die to remove clash mark or erosion lines, but someone actually took the time to redraw it.

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.
