Description & Analysis

This issue marks an invisible dividing line in the series, as it is the first Barber Half Dollar since 1892(P) to be truly plentiful in Mint State, even at the gem level. Most specimens are well, though not fully, struck, and they have excellent luster. Many a 1906(P) half dollar grace collectors' type sets. Circulated examples are likewise common across all grades.

A misplaced date (MPD) variety is known in which the top of an errant zero is seen within the denticles to the right of the date's zero.
