    A partial set of Walking Liberty half dollar that includes an unusual mixture of high grade and low grade pieces. 23 issues are missing and not necessarily the most difficult ones. Among the early dates, the 1916, 1917, 1917-S Reverse, and 1929-S grade XF or better. Those dated 1934 and after are AU 50 to MS 63 examples. The first seven Kennedy half dollars appear at the end of the second book, all MS 60 to MS 63. Also included are two sets of Franklin half dollars, one a solid MS 60 to MS 63 set and the other grading AU 50 to MS 60. Seven partial sets of Lincoln cents. The majority of the first set is dated after 1934 and grades AU 50 or higher. Sets two through four run from 1909-1940, grade Good to AU, and are missing the key and most of the semi-key issues. The fifth set contains most of the P-mints through 1929, 1929-S, and, except for the 1931-D and 1931-S, is complete through 1983 (no doubled dies or small dates). Most of the coins grade MS 60 or higher. The P-mints after 1936 and S-mints starting with 1968-S are proofs. Finally, there are two partial sets dated after 1940 and 1941 respectively. Also included are partial sets of Jefferson nickels, silver Roosevelt dimes, and silver Kennedy half dollars. Last but certainly not least are complete uncirculated sets of Jefferson nickels 1938-1973 and Roosevelt dimes 1946-1971. Two partials sets of Buffalo nickels, the first containing numerous mid-grade pieces and missing only 14 issues, including the varieties. There are several uncirculated examples among the later dates. Also a set of circulated and uncirculated Jefferson nickels, one coin shy of complete (1957-D) through 1965. Next is a partial BU set of Roosevelt dimes through 1968, lacking only the 1953-S, 1956, 1956-D, and 1957. A set of Standing Liberty quarters is partially filled, containing 20 different issues grading AG to AU, averaging Fine. Next is a National Album containing 21 different Barber quarters, 20 average circulated and an 1893 Fine 12. A five-piece set of obsolete 19th century coins is highlighted by an 1862 three-cent silver and an 1875-S twenty-cent piece in XF. There are two sets of 1941-1945 Mercury dimes (never again will we call these short sets), one Fine to AU and the other AU 55 and higher. The final item in this truly large lot is a group of fifty 1945-D dimes, all MS 60-65. many with full bands.
