The 1896-O as an issue saw very, very heavy circulation, and it is now one of the rarest Barber half dollars in problem free EF and AU. We note fairly heavy wear in an EF for the present example, although LIBERTY is full and the surfaces are original in a blanket of pleasing dove-gray patina. Problem free for the grade with no singularly mentionable abrasions.
