Whitlow. A beautiful and evenly toned example with great eye appeal. The strike is strong and this is one of the last three Philadelphia Mint Barber Halves, all with low mintages. This is a tough date, particularly in MS 64 and better. Previously had an MS 64 coin in the set. Tough date with only one graded finer, the Duckor example.
David Akers: This is a moderately rare and very popular issue due to its low mintage of only 188,000 pieces. Business strikes in mint state condition are generally obtainable as long as one does not require a Gem, but Gems are certainly quite rare.
