David Akers: This issue is definitely not the common date it is generally thought to be, and in full Gem condition...it is surprisingly rare. Most great Barber Half Dollar collections of the past (cf. Norweb, Emery-Nichols, Eliasberg) contained proofs, not mint state business strikes, of the P Mint issue since the Proofs were always considered "better" and thus more desirable than the Uncirculated pieces to old-time collectors.
