|Category:||Barber Half Dollar (1892-1915)|
Condition Census rarity! Barber halves are one of the classic United States coin series and the early mint mark issues are rare in all grades. The 1897-O and 1897-S are true key date rarities in all grades. This near perfect Gem is one of only three specimens graded MS67 by PCGS in the past 35 years, with just two graded higher. So this is a Condition Census example of one of the rarest Barber halves. The surfaces are super clean. The strike is amazing, 100% star, hair, feather and claw detail. The luster is fresh and original. The auction record for this grade is $43,125 but we bought this one right.
