1935 walking liberty half dollar double-struck in-collar, with a large rotation between strikes, with large portions of the underlying design obvious to the naked eye. There are two full "1935" dates, two suns on the obverse, and Ms.Liberty is strongly doubled. On the reverse the lettering is very strongly doubled, as is the eagle and other design elements.
This is a remarkable double-strike for a walking liberty half, and all the examples of in-collar double-strikes are very minor--unlike this coin which is dramatic!
We have handled probably 2 or 3 double struck walking halves, but all were so minor that you could hardly tell they were double-struck. Looking around at other double-struck walking halves, you will find that they are super-expensive double-strike off-centers (usually $15,000-$50,000) or the previously mentioned very minor double-strikes with almost no traces of design showing under the 2nd strike.
This coin presents a rare opportunity to own a very eye-catching double-struck walking half for far less than a double-struck off-center.
PCGS F-12 with attractive, rich golden toning and surfaces which are fully original.
