Gem New Price
$2575
Gem Original, Watery Mirrors, Light Creamy White Patina, Accurately Graded, Winesteven Collection. First year of Walking Liberty half dollar proof strikes since 1915 and so popular for that reason. The 1936 half dollar has the second lowest mintage (3901 coins) of proofs struck during the 1936 to 2000 era, with only the 1936 Washington quarter having a slightly lower mintage. Scarce in any grade and rare in Superb Gem condition along with being the rarest proof  Walking Liberty half dollar. This gem example offers watery mirrors and hammered strike. There is a faint amount of reverse toning that has been over emphasized by GFRC images. Speaking of the GFRC images, they leave much to be desired with the coin in hand being significantly more attractive and pleasing. Housed in 2014 generation PCGS holder with CAC approval. Once again, superior quality from the Winesteven Collection.
