I really like Early Date Walkers... Here are some first year issues P-D-S

I like the texture in the field, I like the small crisp date, Thumbs are usually good, Rims are a bit crisper, I like some color on them. Here is my set of 1916 P-D-S, with an extra P

Show off yours! Happy Friday.

    If only I could have found 1916 Walkers like that when coin searching back in the 1960s ... they weren't to be found in much more than G, if that.

    Nice coins!

    I like UNC Walkers but I think they look so good being a bit circulated and not so "shiny" ........

    I love the early date walkers. Only if the US Mint brought this back and had all coins with the same satiny finish found on these early date coins.

    The medallic finish on the fields for the first years lends itself to a different appearance for circulated examples. A great look. The 16-S from @ElmerFusterpuck is especially nice IMHO. Adding some colorful toning as in the @TomB example enhances the look. Congratulations to the OP on your very nice set.

    @Bigtree awesome toned WLH. Any idea what toned it in that fashion?

    Perhaps album toning after a dip? I really have no idea and would welcome input from the forum experts.

    I think that coin is simply album toned without having been dipped prior.

    Agree, great and fun series to collect. Been upgrading set recently. WLHs have a great circulated look.

    Oh man, there's nothing quite like a well struck Walker with a thumb. Feathers are gorgeous too. Nice pics all around guys.

    Not sure if my 16-D can compete with the spectacular example shared by @ElmerFusterpuck , but it’s definitely the favorite Walker in my modest collection. Ex- @clarkbar04 , who had (and may still have) some truly sensational Walkers.

    Very nice album toning on that one! Nice look.

    And my pride and joy for the early Walkers this is one I never get tired of, which explains why I repost it now and then!


    I wouldn’t get tired of that one either!
