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. Beautiful vibrant white surfaces and a great strike with a wonderful 'look'!
Flashy proof surfaces with light powder-blue and gold toning on the obverse and light cream-gold on the reverse.

Very flashy with heavy champagne-white frost on the design and beautiful deep mirrored fields.

Satiny champagne-white luster over pleasing surfaces that show minimal marks. Premium quality and a date that is tough to find in mint state.
Blast white and a great strike with proof-like fields and cameo producing frost on the devices. A flashy example of this scarce date which is seldom available in mint state.
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 of 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!
