1909-O Barber Half PCGS MS65 SOLD
1909-O Barber Half PCGS MS65
The 1909-O Barber Half was the final New Orleans Barber Half before that facility permanently shut off its coin presses and is one of the better dates in the series. The present example exhibits a trace of champagne toning, surrounded by pale lilac in the obverse fields. The reverse is mostly brilliant with frosty silver surfaces and traces of similar pale lilac, more intense at the lower right. The far right of the shield on the reverse is slightly weak, which is common for the date, but the coin is otherwise boldly detailed. A couple of small hidden marks likely limit the grade. The coin is easily one of my favorite coins in the set as it has the eye appeal of an MS66 or MS67 example and is one of the best survivors of the date.
