    I'm not a Walker collector, but given the extra time on my hands from all the social-distancing I've been practicing lately, I decided to take a closer look at a couple of half dollar rolls I purchased a few months ago. The 1946 Walker caught my eye when I looked closely under a good light. Is this a doubled die reverse? Realize it's not a payday find, but an interesting error, nonetheless. I *think* it would grade at least VG. The motto looks either too weak or too blurred (or both) to make out any distinct doubling, although I can make out what appears to be doubling in several letters, plus the eagles wing feathers and right claw seem to further confirm - at least to me. I'd welcome opinions of any better-versed Walker collectors.

    Thanks TC - that's a gorgeous coin and would've been a heckuva find from a roll of junk silver.

    Unfortunately, it cost me more than what one would pay for junk silver.

    very nice.

    I picked up one in an ANACS holder, I think the old soap bar slab.

    In MS 63.

    I got it back in 2008.

    What does yours grade?

    It's raw right now . . . I grade it 63 or 64.

    I seem to think this is also a DDO "GOD" looks doubled to me unless its my rum googles deceiving me.

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes? Supporter

    The obverse is suffering from Die Deterioration. It might resemble hub doubling, but it is not a true double die.
