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.
Flashy proof surfaces with light powder-blue and gold toning on the obverse and light cream-gold on the reverse.
Sharp detail and lustrous with silver-gray toning. Just the barest trace of 'rub' is evident on the highest points of the design.
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.
A beautiful example of this early better date with a flashy cream-white core and attractive peripheral toning. The strike is strong and the eye appeal is outstanding.
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.
CAC. Flashy white luster and a sharp strike with nice clean surfaces.
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.
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 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!
A beautiful example of this better date with rich satiny mint luster and a sharp strike.
A fabulous example of this better date with thick blast white luster and a very sharp strike. Super high quality with excellent eye appeal.
CAC. Beautiful light shades of champagne and gold flow across fields of vibrant frost. Scarce and desirable in any grade with only 3 coins grading numerically higher at PCGS.
CAC. Rich golden-champagne shades blend upon lustrous nearly mint state surfaces. A very desirable issue in all grades and very elusive this nice.
Well struck and satiny white with exceptionally clean surfaces for the grade. A semi-key date that is scarce in any grade with a mintage of just under a million coins.
