    What a beautiful coin! I think those Walkers are one of the prettiest coins out there. I'd be stoked to dig such a thing of beauty. Congratulations to you.

    I totally agree here. There are rarer American coins and more valuable ones too, but the walking liberty to me is the most beautiful of our coins. Well, a Saint Gaudens $20 is right there too but they are seldom found while detecting in the ground. Was your lucky day squirrel!

    Nice job Squirrel. That is my favorite coin to dig. Looks like that lady was your good luck charm for that split moment. I'm glad she was in your way.

    Sweet Find Squirrel! I have yet to experience the thrill of digging a Walking Liberty. All I can say is I want one too. LOL Here's a little history I found.

    The Walking Liberty design is one that very few coin collectors will fail to recognize, heralded as one of the best designs to ever grace a US coin. The evocative image of Lady Liberty seemingly gliding across a sunrise landscape is something that is near and dear to every Americanís heart. In addition to the coinís design, the timing of this particular coinís minting makes it especially valuable. First minted in 1916 and minted up until 1947, this coin was around during some of the most iconic periods of American history.

    Thanks everyone! I too think the Walking Liberty Half is a beautiful coin! This is my 5th year detecting and the 6th Walker I’ve dug. I have only dug one other half dollar coin in 5 years and it was a clan Kennedy.....
