WW2 USA 1944 Half Silver Dollar in Wallet of Authenticity
Designed by Adolf Alexander Weinman in 1916, this 90% silver coin was difficult to strike with full detail, and many examples have poor definition on the figure of liberty and the eagle's wings, as we find here. Also, as is the case with this medal it was not unusual to find that the reverse has been struck the wrong way up on early American coins. Described as extra fine condition. Without mint mark, which means it was minted at Philadelphia.
Unusual to find it in this 1944 coin in a presentation wallet.
