Description & Analysis

The 1908 proof Barber half had the second lowest mintage of the entire series. Only 545 proof coins were struck in Philadelphia as opposed to over 1.3 million mint state issues. Many were well-kept and they are available all the way up to PF68. Most have little to no cameo contrast, however.
