Description & Analysis

The 1903-S half dollar typically is well struck with good luster. Mint State survivors are moderately scarce but not truly rare. Only at the gem level does this issue become rare. Problem-free coins in the higher circulated grades are elusive and in steady demand.

No varieties are known for 1903-S.
