Proof 1892 Half Dollars are among the most plentiful of the series probably because of demand from collectors who wanted a nice example of the first year of Barber's new design. Survivors tend to remain in very nice condition, with many of them grading PR64 or better. Gems are plentiful and even Superb Proofs can be had for a reasonable premium. This date is also known for high-end quality thanks to the existence of a small number of PR68's. Cameo Proofs represent about a third of the total population and Deep Cameos a mere fifth. For type collectors, this date offers great quality and affordable pricing.
