PCGS - The #1 PCGS Registry Set of CAC-stickered Walking Liberty half dollars formed by noted numismatist Mr. Rollo Fox is being auctioned by GreatCollections. The complete collection of 72 coins dated from 1916 through 1947 is graded by PCGS. The massive set includes each date and mint mark of the popular series in business strikes and proofs dated from 1938 through 1942.


1921-S Walking Liberty half dollar, PCGS MS65

Fox assembled the collection over the past few years initially as a side project to his impressive Saint-Gaudens collection of a similar design that was auctioned in 2020. Fox came to appreciate the challenge in assembling a complete set of Walking Liberty half dollars in high grade with CAC stickers. Almost half of the collection (35 coins out of 72), rank as the highest numerical grades that are also accompanied by CAC stickers.

Some of the highlights include the key date 1921-S, graded PCGS MS65. Its counterpart, the 1921-D, also known as a key date for the series, is graded MS65. The 1917-D and 1917-S (both Obverse and Reverse of each) are all graded PCGS MS65 or PCGS MS65+.

In later-date condition rarities, a standout is the 1942-S, graded PCGS MS67+. The 1945, 1946 and 1947 coins are all graded PCGS MS67+.

Ian Russell, president of GreatCollections said, "What a privilege it is to handle these coins for Rollo. With the sheer number of finest knowns in this collection, we are expecting spirited bidding, plus many of the coins so rarely appear on the market. I know collectors will appreciate the quality Rollo aimed for in putting together this complete set."

The complete collection will be on view at the Central States Numismatic Society Convention in Schaumburg, Illinois, on April 27 through April 30 at tables 1000/1100 and at the Irvine, California, offices of GreatCollections by appointment prior to the auction.

All 72 coins are being sold unreserved with bidding to end on Sunday, May 22 and Sunday May 29, 2022. To view high-quality images and register to bid visit https://www.greatcollections.com or call 1-800-442-6467.

Eye candy to most of us.
I prefer my MS++ silver coins in blast white.
That way, they are closer to what they looked like, just after leaving the coining press.

Such coins need to be in air-tights.

I've been slowly assembling a 1940 proof set for my father's birthday June 4th, so I'm keeping an eye on that proof 68+. It's an absolute certainty that the hammer price will exceed my shallow pockets! But wow...what a specimen!

I find the toning on the 40 proof to be quite unattractive. I don't see it as a 68 with the reverse spots either.

In fact I find few of the Fox proofs to be attractive. High numerical grade, yes. Eye appealing coins, nope. That is just me.

Here is a photo of the 1942 S noted in the CCF article as being outstanding MS67+


The one I like is the 1942 D MS68.


The collection has both toners and untoned examples.

A little back ground on the 1942 D. It sold at Legend Auction on 3/2020 for $21,737 and is tied for top pop and none of the 1942 D MS68's at that time had a CAC sticker. The coin was re-holder by PCGS with a Fox label and now has a CAC sticker. It will be interesting what it will sell for at GC with a CAC sticker.

Nice I'm betting a few of these came from the Lulu set I posted about here:

just about 13 months ago. Funny how fast some of these sets are assembled and resold.

Most of them I would not be interested in. I it don't have a full thumb showing, then I'll pass no matter what the grade is.

The 1942S is quite impressive. Very hard to find one with as good detail as that one. I got one Uncircualted that was attractive but stilled showed the lack of detail that plagued many S mint Walking Libs from the 1940's with 1942 being one of the worst.

I collect the business strikes and try for uncirculated. For my budget that leaves me to the period 1933 - 1947 with a smattering of years in in lower grades (say a 38D and the 34S and 35S AU). Got the 1933S in a nice Unc but it cost a bit (well for me). Later this want to get a 34Sor 35S in Unc or high AU and upgrade my 1945. If my budget permits, possibly add 1939 and 1947 as I don't have those years.

Unless you have ample disposable income, it takes many years to acquire a nice set of uncirculated ones from all mints just in the range of MS63 - 66.

Update on the 1942D MS68 with a CAC sticker. It sold for $42,500 that is a very large increase from 2020 sale at $21,737.

Wow, that is a pretty crazy increase in 2 years time, even with the current market.

The design of the Walking Liberty coins is simply magnificent, and in the MS65+ states they look even more expressive.
