In 1908, the Denver Mint was the second most prolific producer of Half Dollars, though the mintage was not quite as large as that of the previous year. The 1908-D Half Dollar is a common date that can be found readily in MS63 and MS64. There is also an ample supply of MS65's -- about half the population of MS64's. The low end of the PCGS CoinFacts Condition Census includes some MS66's, but the real rarities are in MS67, where only a few have been certified. NGC reports a single MS68 -- that coin set a record price for the date in 2014, but it resold in 2015 for substantially less.
