    1939-S Walking Liberty Half dollar!

    Hello!

    I got out for a few hours today downtown ~ I only found a few wheat cents and some clad coins. But then late in the day I got invited by a friend to join him at a spot that he received permission to hunt. We both dug several wheat cents and clad, but I dug the only silver coin that was found there ~ a 1939-S Walking Liberty Half dollar! This is the 2nd Walker that I've found in less than 2 weeks!

    I took pic's of it before and after I cleaned it up. This is my silver coin find #44 for the year!

    Thanks for looking!
    Neil

    That is great. Those Walkers are about my favorite coin. I have always found WW II years when I find one. I have a few that are duplicate dates, but always that era. I always thought it was weird. Nice coin.
