Expert Comments

David Akers: This is a very popular date since it is the lowest mintage issue of the entire Barber Half Dollar series; only 124,230 pieces were minted. However, business strikes are not as rare as that low mintage figure would indicate, and mint state specimens of Choice Uncirculated or lower quality are relatively available. Very Choice examples are moderately rare, and Gem quality specimens are of extreme rarity, among the rarest in the entire series.
