Expert Comments

David Akers: This is a very scarce issue in any mint state grade, although specimens below the Gem level can be located with only moderate difficulty. Accurately graded Gems, however, are very rare, although not quite as much so as the other S Mint issues from 1900-1908. Still, one could easily spend a year or more looking for [a] Gem quality 1906-S Half Dollar.
