David Akers: In Gem condition, the 1893-S is one of the rarest issues in the entire Barber Half Dollar series and only a few such specimens are known... Lower quality mint state examples can be located with only a moderate amount of effort, but it is unequivocally the case that, in Gem Uncirculated condition, the 1893-S Half Dollar is much more rare than the highly prized Silver Dollar of the same date and mint.
