Here’s another set that is filled—and we mean FILLED—with condition rarities. As you look up and down the columns of the population report, you’ll find that many issues in this series show a population in MS65 or better of two coins, three coins, two coins, four coins...you get the idea. There is also a variety in this series that has proved to be a great rarity—the 1892-O "Micro O."

If you want to assemble a spectacular set of Barber half dollars, now would be a great time. The sale of the Eliasberg collection and other fine holdings has brought many outstanding examples on the market for the first time in years.
