As a former coin dealer and coin shop owner I can tell you that your coin is in really nice shape other than the light scratches on the reverse and the small gouges on Liberty's leg. It's a key date in the Walking Liberty Half Dollar series. A recent issue of Coin World lists the RETAIL value at $200-$225 but actual sales prices may be somewhat less plus, the minor imperfections will knock off a few more dollars from the value.. If you sell it to an "HONEST" coin dealer he will most likely offer around 50% of retail value for it. You could most likely get more for it if you sell it to a coin collector but it may be difficult to locate someone who wants this particular coin. Some advice.....if you sell to a coin dealer NEVER tell him what you want for it until he makes an offer FIRST because whatever you say you will take for it he knows that's the MOST he'd have to give you and will negotiate downward from that point. Congrats on a really nice find !

I say VF20 net F12. Greysheet has it valued at $255 retail. $175 would be a fair offer.
