David Akers: The 1902-O Barber Half Dollar is one of the major rarities in the series, certainly ranking in the top 20% of the 74 issues in terms of both overall mint state rarity and Gem mint state rarity. The relatively few Uncirculated specimens that seem to be around of this issue are invariably poorly struck..., and are typically rather lackluster as well. A fully struck 1902-O may not even exist, at least I have never see or heard of one...
