Expert Comments

David Akers: The 1899-O Barber Half Dollar is not as rare as any of the O Mint issues preceding it or those that follow through 1906; in fact, it is relatively available in grades up to and including Choice Uncirculated. However, above that level it is very scarce and true Gems...are rare.
