  • Description:

    The Certified Walking Liberty Half Dollar 1943-D MS65 PCGS (Rattler) has earned a highly coveted grade, among the Walking Liberty series, by PCGS. The term "rattler" refers to the coin's movement in the air-sealed holder, which makes a rattling noise. Collectors have flocked to the Certified Walking Liberty half dollars since their numismatic value increases and their condition cannot be debated once graded. The Walking Liberty half dollar is one of the first series the Denver Mint was able to partake in from start to finish, since it was a relatively new mint at the time. The Walking Liberty's obverse features the grecian Goddess, draped in a flowing robe, with one arm reaching out in invitation and the other holding a bundle of olive branches. The reverse portrays a tall and brave eagle, perched on a branch.

    The Walking Liberty has inspired many designs through the years and more recently, the American Silver Eagle. The Walking Liberty Half Dollar featured the first design, in half dollar history, to depict Liberty's full body. On the preceding half dollars, Liberty's facial portrait was constantly being reinvented but nobody dared to adapt her body onto a coin. Adolph A. Weinman was the sculptor behind the stunning Liberty design and was assigned the task of changing the dime's design as well. Both of Weinman's designs have gone down in history as some of the most successful designs and are still widely collected among serious collectors nationwide.
