Description & Analysis

1909 was the last year in which the New Orleans Mint produced coinage. Some 925,400 half dollars were struck that year. This total is nearly six times lower than the prior year's mintage of over 5 million coins. In lower grades, the 1909-O Barber half is not work much of a premium. However, as the coin approaches mint state, it becomes less common. NGC has only graded 25 in MS65 or above. (8/2016)
