1916-1947 WALKING LIBERTY MINT STATE HALVES

FULL SPLIT THUMB = FTS or FSTB

On the obverse of the Walking Liberty Half Dollar the right arm extending down across the waistline with hand and thumb is defined around the wreath stems. The thumb must have separation from the hand and the wheat line through the hand must be defined. Whether a coin exhibits this depends on the striking pressure the dies were set to when the coin was struck.
