Description & Analysis

The 1904-S Barber half dollar is one of the well-known rarities of the series. With a mintage of only a bit over 550,000 coins, this issue has the eighth lowest mintage of the entire series. In higher grades, this issue becomes even more scarce. In fact, NGC has only graded a total of 4 in grades of gem or higher. (9/2016)
