I have been collecting the Walking Liberty Half Dollars for some time now. I started my raw collection on July 18, 2006 when the spark of collecting reemerged within me due to the State Quarter program. I found myself collecting the Silver Eagles with the Walking Liberty design as well as begin my raw collection of as nice of coins as I can afford.
Now, over 8 years later I have all but 13 of the coins. I had to settle for the 1921's in good condition along with some of the other more expensive specimens in something less than AU or XF (or as Q. David Bowers says EF), but at the ANA this year I did pick up the 1923-S in AU! So with 13 coins left, I have enlisted the help of a local dealer to obtain the last ones I need. I'll see how this goes, I've never gone through this type of adventure with a dealer, but I think it is time to do so.
