Description & Analysis

Beginning in 1906, high-grade Barber half dollars are generally a little easier to locate, according to the belief of many collectors. However, nothing could be further from the truth. In the Price catalog, David Akers suggested this issue is quite rare in MS65 or better, but more plentiful than the 1901 to 1905 P-mint issues.
