The proof Barber half dollar series is composed of 24 different dates, covering the years from 1892 through 1915. The mintages of these coins range from 380 for 1914 to 1,245 for the first-year-of-issue 1892. It is a challenge, but this is a series that can be completed in Proof 65 or better condition. The rarest date, the 1915, has a population of 20 coins in Proof 65 or better condition. (See the comments about the 1915 date in the proof Barber dimes and proof Barber quarters section.)
Some of the dates are available with beautiful cameo devices, while others can be found at times with highly attractive toning or blazing brilliance. What's your preference?
