Ron Guth: In 1901, the Philadelphia Mint produced only 813 Proof Barber Half Dollars for sale to collectors.  This mintage was down slighty from that of the previous year, but was still average to above-average for the series.  The survival rate for this date is quite high, as over half of the mintage has been certified.  The quality of those survivors is mixed, ranging from a number of slightly impaired Proofs to some really superb examples.  In better are plentiful quantities of Choice to Gem Proofs.  Cameos are slightly scarcer than in previous years and, for some reason, Deep Cameo Proofs are extremely rare.
