From a mintage of just 505,000 pieces comes this conditionally rare Gem Barber Half. Both sides are attractively original in tone, otherwise even pinkish-silver iridescence giving way to more vivid reddish-rose and cobalt-blue highlights at the rims. Softly frosted in texture, with only a few trivial abrasions scattered about on the obverse.
