PCGS Certifies Walking Liberty Half Struck 50% Off-Center Finest Known & Most Off-Center
This is the finest known and most off-center Walking Liberty Half. It is struck 50% off- center and is die struck on both sides, not a uniface reverse. Off- center Walking Liberty Halves are RARE. There are only a few known. Until this spectacular off-center was discovered, there was nothing like it anywhere. PCGS authenticated and certified it 50% off-center MS 63.
The next finest known drops to a 40% off-center in VF condition, certified by ANACS. Years ago I sold this mint error for over $25k. After that there are a couple that are 15%, 10% and 5% in various grades.
In comparison, Morgan Dollars that are struck 20% to 50% off-center are very scarce but not rare. A 20% off-center Morgan Dollar is currently being offered on eBay and on another mint error dealerís website for $33,500. I estimate that there are over 15 Morgan dollars that are 20% off-center or more, compared to just these 2 Walking Liberty Halves off-center.
This is an extremely rare major mint error, and the finest known on a Walking Liberty Half Dollar.
