Lot Description
1908-O 50C MS66 PCGS. CAC. The New Orleans Mint was about to close, and it did a year later, with examples from the end of this era often showing weak design definition. Mintage of '08-O half dollars blossomed to 5,360,000 coins, clearly the highest Barber half dollar production of any date from this mint. This is a fully lustrous example with light gold color and wisps of iridescent highlights. The surfaces have frosty luster with excellent eye appeal. A spectacular Premium Gem for the advanced collector. Population: 16 in 66, 12 finer (2/11).
