Owner's Comments

Laibstain. A nice lightly toned coin with strong luster, good strike and clean surfaces. A bit tougher in MS 65 and above than one would expect for being a later date in the series, a quiet sleeper, and can often be picked up for little premium over the commonest dates in the series, at the MS 64 and MS 65 level. Thus it makes a nice choice for a Barber Half type coin with lower population and thus good value. One coin is graded a half point higher, the former Duckor coin, thence to Gene Gardner, and sold at auction in 2014.

Expert Comments

David Akers: This is a popular date due to its low mintage of less than 500,000 pieces which makes it one of the lowest mintages in the entire series. Mint state examples, when available, are generally at the lower end of the quality scale, and Gems...are rare.
