Expert Comments

David Akers: This is one of the most common issues in the series, but it is actually common only in the relative sense as that term applies to Barber Half Dollars. In absolute terms, the 1915-D is uncommon in all mint state grades and very scarce in Gem condition. Many Gems I have seen have not been particularly attractive, however, and so when eye appeal and overall appearance are considered along with technical quality (lack of marks etc.), it is apparent that Gems...are quite rare and very desirable.
