Greysheet Catalog Details (GSID: 198242)

The 1922 Half dollar is part of a series of Classic Commemorative coins struck from 1893-1954. The specific variety is Grant with Star. Struck in Philadelphia and designated as a Business (SP) strike, this coin is made of 90% silver; 10% copper from a mintage of Unknown struck.
Most 1922 Grant half dollars don't have a large star on the right obverse field. But, a relatively small number of issues do have one. What is the star for? Theories suggest the idea was to create a rarer variety for collectors to pursue, but the official origin story for Grant with Star half dollar is unknown. The Grant with Star half dollar, designed by Laura Gardin Fraser to commemorate the 100th birth anniversary of Ulysses S. Grant, the solider who became the nation's 18th president, has been recognized as a key coin in the traditional commemorative series for many decades.

The 1922 Grant with Star half dollar is rare in all grades and particularly so in the Gem grades, with strike issues in Grant's hair and marks in the obverse field often proving most troublesome. MS66s are very rare and pieces grading MS67 or higher are elusive. While it is difficult to find super high-grade 1922 Grant with Star half dollars, those that exist often look quite decent and offer excellent luster.

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.
