Dave Weygant. Nice original toning and good luster. A very tough date in MS 65 and better, and a really good date in MS 64. This is a date we really like due to the low mintage and lack of many gem and better coins. The low mintage has led to circulated coins to be hoarded by some. Only two finer graded than this nice gem.
David Akers: This is a very popular date since it is the lowest mintage issue of the entire Barber Half Dollar series; only 124,230 pieces were minted. However, business strikes are not as rare as that low mintage figure would indicate, and mint state specimens of Choice Uncirculated or lower quality are relatively available. Very Choice examples are moderately rare, and Gem quality specimens are of extreme rarity, among the rarest in the entire series.
