Description & Analysis

The initial enthusiasm that collectors had for the novel Barber half dollar design, as evidenced by the generous mintage of 1,245 pieces allotted to the silver proofs of 1892, was either exceedingly short-lived or a figment of a Mint official's imagination. Just 792 pieces were struck for the proof halves of 1893, the same as the rest of the silver proofs.
