Description & Analysis

The Denver Mint produced its first coinage in 1906. Among those premier issues were 320,000 Liberty half eagles. It seems many of the new coins were either saved or were not used extensively in circulation, as they are relatively common through the grade of MS64. In gem, they become slightly less easy to locate, and are extremely rare above gem.
