Lot Description
1896-O 50C MS64 PCGS. The 1896-O half ranks as one of the important issues in the Barber half dollar series, one of just 21 issues with mintages below 1 million coins. In fact, all New Orleans Barber coins are desirable, even those that are considered common dates. This incredible near-Gem is fully brilliant with bright silver surfaces that are enhanced by subtle traces of peripheral gold toning on each side. The strike is exceptional with essentially full definition of every design element, including the obverse stars and the feather details on the reverse. Population: 6 in 64, 6 finer (3/08).
