In 1919, the United States was just emerging from the First World War, this caused a slowdown in the markets, which meant fewer coins were needed. Therefore, mintages of circulating coinage fell quickly in 1919 across all three mints. The 1919-D Walking Liberty Half Dollar is one of the great condition rarities in the Walking Liberty half dollar series. It is elusive in all Mint State grades and is the rarest date in the series in Gem or better condition. This MS62 coin remains collectible while still being scarce. Fewer than 1.2 million 1919-D half dollars were struck, and heavy circulation during the years following their issuance reduced the majority of surviving examples to lower circulated grade levels.
