Description & Analysis

By the end of the Barber design, fewer and fewer collectors acquired proof examples from the Mint, and the 450 specimens struck for this final-year issue was the second-lowest mintage for the series. (In 1914, only 380 pieces were issued, the lowest such value for the denomination since 1858.) Though many numismatists of past generations warmed to Barber halves only slowly, many enthusiasts study and collect the series today.
