this coin has gorgeous aquamarine toning - unfortunately just can't catch it in pics.

Expert Comments

David Akers: The 1902 has one of the highest mintage figures in the entire series, just short of 5,000,000 pieces, yet for some reason it is extremely difficult to locate in Gem condition. To be sure, lower grade mint state pieces can be located with a little diligence, but true Gems...are almost non-existent. One would have better luck finding some of the more highly regarded mintmarked issues of the 1890's in Gem condition than one would have of locating a comparable quality 1902 Barber Half Dollar.
