This was 'the' mid-grade Barber half that officially hooked me. Mike's advised "Let the underbidder determine the price of this one." And that's what I did. Still looking at this coin about 15 years later... Posted already on the GTG thread.

Last 1895, a little nicky, quite the perfect cameo, but still a tough to find "S" mint, semi-key with original surfaces in XF - and without breaking the budget

That is a great '96-S @TM and is one of the Barber quarters that I don't have. Instead, here is my '96-O:

One of Elbesaar's semi-key XF coins. These are his pictures. He used to ask one of the board members over at CU to resize them for him for several years without complaint. Once the first Megathread was closed and the second started, Mike decided he would learn to do the photoediting thing himself. Kudos to Dave99b

Going to save some for the grading thread. The monotony is neither easy to obtain or inexpensive. Condition rarity + demand = $$$

Very nice examples so far - I'm enjoying all the coins and especially the circulation cameo examples shown by Two Tone.

My Barbers are 'limited' to lowball half dollars. This coin was a workhorse of the economy in the day and while the majority of the surviving population likely grades VG or lower, finding a true certifiable lowball is quite a challenge in itself.

I'll share a few to give you a sense:

1897 Barber half dollar - PCGS FR02



1897-O Barber half dollar - PCGS PO01



1897-S Barber half dollar - PCGS PO01



Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.finewoodcrafter.com
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.
