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.
