Barber Half Dollars were made from 1892 to 1915. They were designed by Charles Barber with the same design as used on the dime and quarter.
Coins were minted in Philadelphia, Denver, New Orleans, and San Francisco. Many better dates exist in the Barber Half Dollar Series, but none are prohibitively rare or expensive.
CAC. Fantastic fresh white luster with a touch of lavender at the rim. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are exceptionally nice. Outstanding for the grade with that special 'keeper-look' that few coins have!
Flashy proof surfaces with light powder-blue and gold toning on the obverse and light cream-gold on the reverse.
Blast white frosty surfaces with a sharp strike. Just a little friction keeps this from grading mint state.
Frosty white luster blended with light golden highlights. A splendid example of a scarce date.
CAC. Sharp detail with lovely champagne-silver surfaces and just a touch of wear.
Blast white reflective almost proof-like surfaces are enhanced further with razor-sharp strike. Old 'green label' holder.
Beautiful cream-white luster and a strong strike. Perfect for the grade.
CAC. One of the 'keys' to the series with a modest mintage of 740,000. PCGS and NGC have graded 16 coins AU-50 with this being the only one to also receive CAC approval!
CAC. A nice original example of this scarce date with sharp detail and lustrous surfaces that are lightly toned.
Sharply struck with flashy champagne-white luster. A semi-key date with a modest 740,000 minted.
Exquisite cameo devices. Mostly blast white surfaces. A touch of golden tint lines the outermost edge of the obverse. A golden hue shimmers from the lettering to the edge on the reverse. Fantastic eye appeal. Only 5 coins grade numerically higher in PCGS holders.
Flashy white luster and a needle-sharp strike with excellent eye appeal. A scarce date in this high of grade.
CAC. Flashy white luster and a sharp strike with nice clean surfaces.
Blast white. Beautifully mirrored surfaces highlight devices with a delicate cameo. Very attractive.
This is the nicest example of this date to come on the market in a few years. Very well struck with lush cream-white luster and a trace of gold at the rim.
CAC. Bold detail with nice original surfaces.
This is the rarest date in the series in Mint State, surpassing even the 1904-S. This example has frosted white design features and magnificent proof-like surfaces with very few insignificant marks. The strike is consistent with most the known high grade examples. It is solid overall with some weakness to the right side stars and slight weakness to the right side of the shield on the reverse and the eagle's neck. This is a super collector coin and one of the stars of our inventory!
CAC. Nearly XF detail and pleasing surfaces. P.Q. for the grade.
Well detailed with nice clean soft gray surfaces. Outstanding for the grade and one of the hardest dates in the series to find in high grade.
A beautiful example of this better date with rich satiny mint luster and a sharp strike.
