    1943-Dated Walking Liberty Half
    Struck 60% Off Center
    Mint State Details

    1943-? 50C Walking Liberty Half Dollar -- Struck 60% Off Center, Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Struck widely off center toward 1 o'clock. On the obverse, the date and WE are present, as is most of the sun and the lower half of Liberty. The reverse displays the upper half of the eagle and most of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Any mintmark is off the flan, as is all of HALF DOLLAR and nearly all of E PLURIBUS UNUM. The struck portion is lustrous and exhibits light golden-brown toning. The Walking Liberty half dollar was struck for more than 30 years, but off-center examples are very rare. If double struck or wrong planchet pieces are excluded, the only off-center Walker in our online auction archives is a 10% off center 1918 half dollar as lot 8372 in our August 2004 Pittsburgh Signature, which re-emerged as lot 4428 in our April 2013 Central States Signature. The present lot has a more dramatic appearance, and provides an invaluable opportunity for the off-center type collector.
