I’m now working on a PCGS registry set for all of my Walkers, so I’m slowly upgrading some and crossing others. Here is my 1947 upgrade. GTG if you’d like.
I'll guess 65. It looks like it has nice originality, the marks on the eagle may limit the grade. Very nice coin though.
Great strike. Smooth fields and sun. Just a reeding ding on the skirtline.
I'll say MS 66.

My Full Walker Registry Set:
@ThreeCentSilverFL What is the name of your set? I'd like to check it out.
Very original, though I find that ding on the skirt line and the dark streak on Liberty’s neck and face a little distracting. Wouldn’t bother me at all on an early date. And I imagine the luster is great in hand. 65?
Looks like some luster there.... and nice definition with some limiting marks....64, could well go 65. Cheers, RickO
I'm thinking 65. Noticed what Walkerguy21D said right away. I like it just the same.
I would think the mark to the left of the hand and the two on the skirt would prevent a 66. I feel a 65 unless grader's are in a fowl mood. Yes, I would enjoy viewing your set.
I'm trying to figure out what generation holder that is. The right obverse field seems awfully clean. A 65 seems very agreeable, and as others noted: nice originality!
Good eye for all of those 65 guesses.
@Walkerfan and @jesbroken my registry set is in progress, and probably always will be. Just working on setting up some Digital Albums for only the Walkers for now. I have 5 in for crossover that are in Encapsulation now. And I sold off 5 in other holders and will now be looking for replacements for those. So I went from a full date/mm Late Date Set, to an almost complete Late Date Set.
Also still working on the Early Date Set. Here's my Late Date Set Walker Album in progress.
@planetsteve I think it's the 2.1 Holder circa 1989 used transitionally just after the doily. Per the PCGS museum site:
And I love the 2.1....It's my favorite PCGS holder!!
Great set. Thanks for sharing. I unfortunately have so many extras in other holders and new raw coins, I will have a tremendous task converting them to PCGS in order to keep them all the same. I love your 33S as I do the rest of your coins, but that coin has the benefit of facing the world and remaining intact.
