1908 Barber Half Dollar. MS-67 (PCGS).A fully lustrous Superb Gem, this highly original example shows light brown iridescent color on both sides. This is a perfect example of the type that is captured by the near complete strike portrayed by full star centrils and crisp detail throughout most of the shield and much of the eagles plumage.<p>At 1,354,000 coins produced, the 1908 boasts a respectable mintage in the circulation strike Barber half dollar series of 1892 to 1915. Perhaps not surprisingly, this is a common and popular type issue in most grades. Commercial use was heavy, however, as it was for all Barber half dollar issues, the typical 1908 half dollar in numismatic circles well worn and confined to the Good to Fine grade range. Mint State survivors are scarce in an absolute sense, with most owing their existence to contemporary dealers who set aside a small number of original rolls (which have long since dispersed into the market). A Condition Census example across both PCGS and NGC, this virtually pristine condition rarity makes a strong impression in all regards.PCGS# 6512. NGC ID: 24N4.PCGS Population: 3; 1 finer (MS-67+).
