Expert Comments

David Akers: Although not really a really rare issue, the 1915-S is certainly more difficult to locate than the 1915-D and some of the Philadelphia Mint issues in the series. It is, however, by a significant margin, the most often available Barber Half Dollar from the San Francisco Mint in all mint state grades, including Gem condition.
