Won this lot of 3 Walking Liberty half dollars for a bid of $99. The 1943 and 1947 are in PCGS rattler holders and the 1945 is in an NGC soap bar. The 1947 is a bit of a tougher date, but only slightly.

These are the seller's pics -- think I did okay at the price, or did I overpay? His pictures are not that great, the obverse ones were half the size of the reverse and I had to scale them up to the same size.

Thanks for any comments/insight.

















edit: the obverse of the 1947 was MIA

Heck, it's worth it just to get the 2 rattler holders.

Looks like an outstanding pick up. The coins have some nice toning.

You did well. The 43 is well struck. I always look at her left hand as this is often a weakly struck point on most specimens. Just note the difference between the 43 and 45; both graded the same.

Nice pick ups!

Who could argue? Three super-looking coins for less than the slabbing costs. Well done!

I'll take photos once they show up & see how they actually look. Nice to finally "score", been on a dry streak for awhile.

Gold foil stamping on the INSIDE is much rarer than the gold foil stamped on the outside of the NLF (No line fatty) that youi have... but neither of them is common.
