Description & Analysis

Collectors of the time were weary of Charles Barber's Liberty Head design and its contemporaries, all of which had been in production for many years. This is reflected in the plunging sales of proofs throughout this decade. Gems of the 1904 proof half dollar are somewhat more scarce than for most earlier dates in the series. Cameo proofs are particularly rare.
