Ron Guth: The 1912-D is one of the most common Barber Half Dollars in Mint State, making it a perfect choice (and an excellent value) for type purposes.  Literally hundreds of 1912-D Half Dollars have been certified by PCGS in Mint State, mostly in MS63 and MS64.  Scores of MS65 examples round out the high end, after which the population drops off dramatically in MS66 until it hits the wall at MS67.  This date comes nice, looks nice, and is worth a look.


David Akers: This is one of the few Barber Half Dollar issues that can reasonably be termed common in all mint state grades including Gem condition. However, well struck, attractively toned Gem quality examples...are not easy to locate...
