Why purchase this 1942-D Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar?
The Silver Walking Liberty Half Dollar coin was struck for circulation by the U.S. Mint from 1916 until 1947. Through two devastating World Wars and the economic collapse of the Great Depression, the series endured as a symbol of American strength. Design of the series is credited to Adolph A. Weinman, a prominent medallic and architectural sculptor of the early 20th century.
Stunningly Detailed Patriotic Imagery

Reverse: An eagle with its wings raised in a defensive pose is boldly illustrated on the reverse, standing on a boulder near a lone mountain pine sapling.
