Super frosty and fully struck Gem! The Barber half dollar series has some of the great bargains of the current coin market. The New Orleans and San Francisco dates are especially underrated. Collectors really didn’t pay attention to mint marks until about 1910, prefering to just get one of each date, usually the proof. So S-Mints and O-Mints, which were lower mintages and rare to begin with, weren’t saved. The 1905 San Francisco is a very scarce coin in all grades and a very rare coin in Gem condition. This beauty has super clean mark-free surfaces. The strike is really exceptional. Every central point of every obverse star is pointed and fully evident. The eagle’s claws and feathers are 100% full. The luster is pure white and super frosty. This one looks like it came fresh from the bank yesterday! A fantastic specimen of this better date Barber half
