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.
Roll of 20 AG or better.
Nice brilliant mirrored fields with a faint golden hue. The design elements have nice mint frost.
Light gold and lavender toning over nice mirrored fields. Ms. Liberty is lightly frosted and creamy white.
Brilliant with great contrast between the deep mirrored proof surfaces and the heavily frosted design elements. A gorgeous Premium Gem. Only 4 have graded higher at PCGS.
A super popular scarce date. From the first year of the series and the New Orleans Mint. This example is a frosty white coin that is very well struck and shows no significant abrasions. Very nice!
CAC approved. Attractive lite golden champagne tone blended with a generous amount of luster. The 3rd lowest mintage of the series and the first year of production add to the desirability.
A pleasing example of this scarce date. Just 390,000 minted.
Very sharp detail with light silver-gray design elements and moderately toned fields. A scarce date that is particularly difficult to locate certified in the higher circulated grades.
A pleasing example of this better date.
A pleasing example of this semi-key date.
CAC. Sharp detail and tough to find in the middle grades!
A wonderful example of this better date with booming, bright white luster and a razor sharp strike. A few scattered marks define the grade but the intense mint luster gives this Gem incredible eye appeal.
Solid detail. Nearly VF.
Beautiful frosty white luster and a sharp strike with nice clean surfaces. A sliver of gold at the rim frames this intensely lustrous Barber Half.
