Two 1921-S WLHs, Grade? Value? Opinions sought!

4 posts in this topic

Grading draped bust halves? Easy. Classic head large cents? Piece o'cake!


But Walkers? I'm just about clueless. So, what's the grade and value of this cute pair? 893scratchchin-thumb.gif Get 'em slabbed?


Thanks in advance for your expert opinions.

Hi James,

IMO the first coin pictured will come back as a fine. The second coin, although quite similar in appearance, would probably 'no-grade' because of the 11:00 rim bruise. Would be interesting to see. I'm not exactly 'Mr. Slab' so this is only an opinion.

I will call the left coin (A) and the right one (B).

Coin (A) I think would grade VG 10 TO F 12.

Coin (B) I would grade a solid F 15 excluding the edge bump which displays only minor metal displacement yet is still a detraction.

Value of the pair I would say is between $275-$375 range.

I wouldn`t try to get them certified unless values rise sharply. Then only with a respectable service that provides net grading. wink.gif

G and VG! On ebay, there are coins in worse shape selling for higher prices than what my 1998 US red book quotes of $22 and $27. 27_laughing.gif With the toning, they may fetch 2-3 times higher. The amazing thing is how many are being sold raw and fetching nice prices! What does that say about the TGC's? 893scratchchin-thumb.gif
