Description & Analysis

The rarity of Mint State 1904-S half dollars is well documented over many years. Only 553,038 coins were minted, the eighth-lowest production of the entire series. In Gem grades, the 1904-S is one of the rarest Barber halves aside from the 1892 Micro O variety, 1893-S, and 1900-O.
