Lot Description
1915 50C MS64 PCGS. CAC. The 1915 has the second-lowest mintage of any Barber half dollar. Just 138,450 examples were struck, narrowly surpassing the lower 124,610 coin mintage of the 1914 issue. It is a sharply struck and lustrous example with all of the design elements boldly defined. The right obverse displays a few delicate grazes. Attractive powder-blue and olive toning adds to the appeal of this important specimen. Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 2/2005), lot 7177, which realized $3,737.50.
