"2016-W" Walking Liberty Silver Half Eagle over-strike, 90% silver

Your Price: Unavailable
Item Number: mm_0050_2016w
Brilliant satin high-grade finish. Over-struck on 90% silver Walking Liberty half dollars of 1917-1947.

The original American Silver Eagle design was based on the Weinman Walking Liberty half dollar obverse of 1916, combined with the new Mercanti Eagle reverse of 1986.
This piece represents a "what if ?" concept as a Silver Half Eagle using the Weinman and Mercanti designs.
A small obverse "W" mint mark is reminiscent of the obverse "D" and "S" mint marks that were used on some Walking Liberty half dollars in 1916 and 1917.

By purchasing one or more of these, the buyer agrees to provide full disclosure of their origin when reselling them. Failure to provide potential buyers with complete and accurate information when offering these could result in criminal and/or civil fraud charges. In other words, don't try to sell to unaware buyers as original coins of this date.

Since these are over-struck on existing coins, there may be faint evidence of the original coin design showing since the over-strike is usually not perfectly aligned with the original strike.
