1919 Half Dollar Uncirculated Condition

Uncirculated: A coin without wear is considered as "uncirculated" condition. Viewing you coin under a light, slowly rotate it, the shine and luster is continuous from edge to edge. Circulation renders the tops of the designs dull by removing the delicate luster. Look for this running down the center of Liberty. If you can confirm your 1919 half dollar is uncirculated it is at the high end of value.


1919 Half Dollar Extremely Fine Condition

Extremely Fine: An old Walking Liberty half dollar in "extremely fine" condition has lost only a small amount of design detail due to wear. The luster of a new coin is gone but the overall look is still well defined and pleasing. Light flattening is visible on Liberty's head, the uppermost folds of her gown and just above the date. Separation of the branches she holds is still complete.


1919 Half Dollar Fine Condition

Fine: Wear has taken its toll and merged parts of the smaller elements of a coin in "fine" condition. In the center where Liberty's left arm is holding the branches, the majority of the separation has disappeared, leaving an indistinct flattened area. Loss of metal has reduced the sun's rays, some are just barely visible or absent.


1919 Half Dollar Good Condition

Good: Once a highly detailed Liberty with a flowing gown is now just a distinctly flat outline. It is no longer clear Liberty is holding many branches. Her head, torso and leg are all one smooth and flat area. Most collectors replace coins in this condition with finer examples, leaving these at the low end of 1919 half dollar value.
