About this set: If you are a Barber Collector your best resource is the (BCCS) Barber Coin Collectors Society www.barbercoins.org Join !!! This collection is built solely on circulated coins. Nearly half the coins in this set have pcgs pops of less than 100. My goal was all coins being a minimum grade of AU50 with an overall average of 55.5. Of course the 04s and 97o are major show stoppers. There are a few coins that I would like to replace and there are many that I just absolutely love - 92s,95o,96s, 05 P, 09 P, 09s - just to name a few. The 97o is the finest original XF coin I have ever seen for the date and when I upgrade it is destined for a great XF collection in Georgia. Registry and BCCS has allowed me to become friends with numerous other barber collectors - my "Barber Buddies" and have provided or helped me find numerous coins in this set.

64731895-S50CAU58120120This coin is drop dead gorgeous - and a couple days circulated away from a 4 or 5.
6474189650CAU5311271127I only have one word for this coin "ORIGINAL"
64751896-O50CAU50719719I traded this coin for some 55-58 semikey barber quarters - 02s,99s,05o and others from the Sandwich Collection. It took me 18 months to get it back and it cost me a 60% premium. Looking back would I do it again - you betcha. One of my top 5 favorite coins and it is now back home after being held hostage !!

65001904-S50CXF4516431643would love to upgrade - bid the Hayes 58 last year and was the high bidder for 55 seconds. If anybody has a nice original AU for sale or trade please email me.
6501190550CAU58250250Purchased raw from Dave Kahn Rare Coins - I was expecting a 58+ and was disappointed. There are only 4 or 5 circulated "+" coins in the entire series. Perhaps one day this will be added, I think it is most definately worthy.
