Ron Guth:

The 1906 Half Dollar is a very common date, thus it is a good choice for type collections. It is readily available in MS62 to MS64. At least two dozen Gems are known, but it is difficult to locate a 1906 Half Dollar that grades above MS65. Two of the finest examples include the mostly white PCGS MS67 (ex Hugon) and the slightly more colorful, shimmering PCGS MS67 (ex Duckor-Gardner).

David Akers: This issue is moderately scarce but certainly not rare in mint state; in fact, below the Gem level, specimens are available with regularity. However, full Gems...are quite rare, although not nearly as much so as the elusive and underrated P Mint issues from 1901-1905.
