The Walking Liberty half dollar is a silver 50-cent piece that was
designed by Adolph A. Weinman and issued by the United States Mint from
1916 to 1947. In 1915, the new Mint director, Robert W. Woolley,
incorrectly believed that he was not only allowed but required by law to
retire coin designs that had been in use for 25 years. He began
replacing the Barber coinage: dimes, quarters and half dollars bearing
similar designs, first struck in 1892 by long-time Mint Engraver Charles
E. Barber. Weinman's design of Liberty striding towards the Sun for the
half dollar proved difficult to perfect, and it never struck well, which
may have been a factor in its replacement by the Franklin half dollar
beginning in 1948. Nevertheless, art historian Cornelius Vermeule
considered the piece to be among the most beautiful US coins. Since
1986, a modification of Weinman's obverse design has been used for the
American Silver Eagle, and the half dollar was issued in gold for its
centennial in 2016.

Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr

Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,

Psalm 100: 4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
