Greysheet & CPG® PRICE GUIDE

U.S. Coin Values: Walking Liberty Halves.

About 1916-1947 50c

Walking Liberty half dollars are widely considered one of the most beautiful silver coins the United States has ever struck. The Walking Liberty half dollar was designed by Adolph A. Weinman and was issued from 1916 through 1947 and became one of the most popular coins of all time.

Walking Liberty half dollars are mostly common coins that are made from a composition consisting of 90% silver and 10% copper. Therefore, low-grade Walking Liberty half dollars are commonly traded as junk silver coins among investors and collectors at spot or at very small premiums just above melt.

While most Walking Liberty half dollars are highly common and affordable, especially in the lower circulated grades, there are several scarce dates that command significant premiums. These include all 1916 Walking Liberty half dollars (from the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mints), 1917-D and 1917-S obverse mintmark half dollars, 1919-D, all 1921 halves (Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco), and 1938-D Walking Liberty half dollar. Also scarce are all Walking Liberty half dollars minted before 1934 in grades of XF40 or better. All pre-1934 Walking half dollars grading in MS65 or higher are rare.

About CDN Prices

All CDN prices are based on proprietary market knowledge and technology developed by CDN Publishing, LLC.

CPG® prices represent retail levels. Collectors should refer to CPG values as a starting place for their negotiations, or auction bid reference.

Greysheet/Greensheet prices are wholesale market levels for collectible coins/paper money intended to indicate what a dealer, or wholesale, buyer would pay for the described item in the specified grade. Greysheet/Greensheet represent "sight-seen" values based on a buyer's in-hand review. The actual value can be more or less than this depending on factors including eye appeal and market timing.

Bluesheet (NGC & PCGS) prices represent the highest sight-unseen offers to buy on dealer networks like CDN Exchange. In many cases, there are no active sight-unseen buy offers, so CDN looks to the recent lowest market values for such an item. For this reason, Bluesheet values typically represent the floor of the market for the specified item. CDN only tracks Bluesheet on certain items.

CAC prices are for U.S. coins that meet the standards of the Certified Acceptance Corporation. You can learn more about CAC on their web site.

Price movement is indicated for price changes in the last 30 days.

The prices listed in our database are intended to be used as an indication only. Users are strongly encouraged to seek multiple sources of pricing before making a final determination of value.
