How much are my U.S. 1938 Half dollar worth?

About 1938 Walking Liberty Halves

The 1938 Walking Liberty Half Dollar comes from a mintage of just over four million. This is only notable because it is the lowest of all the Philadelphia mint issues of the so called common Walker era from 1934 to 1946. Therefore, it is ever so slightly scarcer in Mint State than the rest of the bunch. Relatively common through MS66, then a bit tougher in MS67 and very rare in MS68 as just a few exist. Overall, the issue is very attractive with strong strikes and luster. Pretty golden color is often found with this date.

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.
