Description 1919 50C MS66 NGC. CAC. Ex: "Col." E.H.R. Green. A meager mintage of 962,000 Walking Liberty half dollars was struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1919, but a number of high-quality examples were saved by contemporary collectors. As a result, the 1919 is not as difficult to locate in Mint State as the low mintage suggests, though it is still quite rare at the MS66 level. This coin is a delightful Premium Gem, with sharply detailed design elements and satiny mint luster under shades of lime-green and lavender patina. The well-preserved surfaces have strong eye appeal. Census: 12 in 66, 0 finer (9/13). Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $12.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $16,450.00 . Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions,
