Mint strike question for Walking Liberty Half Dollars
I have noticed on many 1937 S Walking Liberty Half Dollars this striation in the field next to Liberty. Exactly what part of the striking process causes this? Is it pressure related, or worn dies, new dies? Also, which book would you recommend that fully explains all the strike characteristics and their causes with photos?
