Ron Guth:

The 1900-O Barber Half Dollar is a semi-scarce and underrated date, more so than is generally believed. It compares favorably with the 1901-O and 1902-O, both of which share similar population profiles. Mint State 1900-O Half Dollars are seen most often in MS64, then MS63; rarely so in MS65 and MS66. None are known in MS67, which is quite a statement for a Barber Half Dollar.
