Laibstain. A very pretty coin with good strong luster and nice toning. This is a very common date in circulated condition and in lower mint state grades up through MS 65. Surprisingly no coins have graded higher than MS 66. Toning is less common in the latter dates in the set. The Philadelphia issue of 1911 is the easiest of the three issues for the year to find in gem or better, although the 1911-D isn't far behind. This date serves as a potential type coin in grades up to MS 64 and MS 65.
David Akers: This is not a rare issue at all, but rather a fairly common one in all mint state grades, including Gem condition, something that cannot be said for very many Barber Half Dollar issues.
