Description & Analysis

Proof coins continued their slide during 1903, a trend that would last through the end of Barber silver coinage. The 1903 half dollar is not particularly rare, but precious few display sufficient contrast to be certified as Cameo. Non-Cameo proofs are fairly available through PF-66, but the numbers drop off rapidly in higher grades.
