Not all uncirculated halves are valued the same, exceptional coins with quality surfaces and no blemishes are valued much higher. Exhibiting all the necessary features to place it among the best condition halves in existence.

Serious collectors appreciate coins of this quality and form collections containing coins of this quality only.
If your coins are part of a collection assembled years ago and well cared for since, judge each carefully. Collectors strive to add nicer condition halves to their collection and generally fewer of these old silver half dollars survive in better condition.
To accurately place a value, each are judged and a "grade" is resolved. Dealers and collectors both use the terms found below. Compare your coin to the images and descriptions, finding the grade and half dollar value. A coin without wear is considered as "uncirculated" condition.

If you can confirm your half dollar is uncirculated it is at the high end of value. 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.

And on the reverse is a wide smooth area from the eagle's head along the chest to the leg. On both sides once rounded designs have worn away, there is noticeable flatness to branches and leaves, the sun and its rays, and along the folds in Liberty's gown.
