Description & Analysis

The 1902 Philadelphia Barber half dollar had the third highest mintage of the entire series with some 4.9 million coins struck. However, few were saved from circulation, and the coin is quite uncommon in mint state. In gem, the issue is even harder, with less than 10 coins graded in MS65 at NGC, with only 7 higher. (9/2016)
