    1942 Walking Liberty Half, MS65
    Struck on a Silver Quarter Planchet

    1942 50C Walking Liberty Half -- Struck on a Silver Quarter Planchet -- MS65 PCGS. Lustrous and crisply struck with pleasing surfaces and only a whisper of tan toning. The upper half of the date is present, as is the area where a mintmark would be, confirming a Philadelphia strike. Photographed on page 206 of Mike Byers' World's Greatest Mint Errors.
