David Akers: The 1901-O Barber Half Dollar is one of the premier issues in the Barber Half Dollar series and, in fact, there are some experts who have expressed their opinion that it may well be the rarest in the entire series after the Micro O variety of 1892. Personally, I feel there are some other issues in the series that are more rare, but it is undoubtedly the case that the 1901-O is solidly in the top ten issues of the series with respect to both population rarity and condition rarity.
