1935 s walking liberty half dollar

The topic of this entry is a 1935 s walking liberty half dollar.  This silver coin is not a key date but it is more scarce than the most common Walking Liberty dates.  The minted number was 3.854 million.   It was struck a few years into the Great Depression and had good purchasing power that might buy one a pound of steak, a container of ketchup and a quart of milk.  This 1935 s walking liberty half dollar is composed of 90% silver and 10% copper and has a depictions of Lady Liberty on the obverse and an American eagle on a perch on the reverse.  It is a very handsome design, perhaps one of the best in US coinage history.

Our 1935 s walking liberty half dollar appears to be a very good grade.

George Washington Commemorative Token 1st President USA

In this entry we’ll have a discussion on a George Washington Commemorative Token which was produced by Scovill Manufacturing Co and is thought to be approximately 60 to 100 years old.  On the front is an image of the 1st President of the United States of America: George Washington.  He believed strongly in democracy and even though held extraordinary power after winning the American Revolutionary war he did not make himself King or Emperor for the sake of the Republic.  Washington also refused to be President for more than 2 terms.  In the second picture is the reverse side which honors Washington though he did get paid as President but refused pay when leading the Continental Army in the American Revolution.

This nice token honors a great US President.
