    With the United States flexing its military might in World War II, 1942 marked a year of resolve and economic recovery for the nation, and a need for circulating coinage increased. Insomuch, more than 70 million Walking Liberty half dollars were struck in 1942, smashing single-year mintage numbers for the coin and providing substantial amounts of the coin for circulation. Half dollars carried a heavy burden in circulation in 1942, and were often used to pay for lunches and dinners and were traded in many common transactions.

    For that reason, many 1942 half dollars show signs of very heavy wear. Conversely, however, there are plenty of 1942 halves that have been preserved in high grades, which is a byproduct of the high mintage numbers from that year.
