Description & Analysis

This is a moderately scarce issue in the Barber series. MS and AU coins are not too hard to find, as is true also for heavily worn examples. As with so many Barber Halves of the 1890s it is the mid grades of F through XF that are most challenging to locate.

There are no varieties reported for this issue.
