Description & Analysis

On April 16, 1863, the federal government purchased the Denver facility of Clark, Gruber & Co. for $25,000. Congress initially planned to convert the building into a branch mint, but postponed this project in favor of using the facility as an assay office. The Denver Mint did not open until February of 1906.

The premier Half Eagle from this branch mint, the 1906-D was produced to the extent of 320,000 coins. This issue is anything but rare in an absolute sense, and collector will have little difficulty locating Uncirculated examples in grades up to and including MS63. Near-Gems, while scarce, are usually obtainable with patience, and this issue does not show its condition rarity until one crosses the Gem threshold.
