Numismatic News - When it comes to United States half dollars, there are definitely fans for almost every series we can think of, bar none. The Walking Liberty half dollar, for example, continues to be a design that plenty of collectors love. One series that does not usually get as much attention, but that still has some devoted fans, is the Barber half dollars. The Barber image, named after U.S. Mint Engraver Charles Barber, was used on the dime, quarter and half dollar from 1892 up to 1915, and today does indeed have a fan following. For the non-believers among us, search online for the Barber Coin Collector Society for some great information. For right here and right this moment, however, let's see if there might be any bargains with this classic set of 50-cent pieces.

And so, it's logical to look at the price of Mint State Barber half dollars. Doing so gets us to this number: $600 - for the common dates. That certainly is higher than what we have seen when examining some other series of classic U.S. silver, but to quote many a famous movie line, "There you have it."

I like the design too—although someone had to tell me the profile on the obverse is supposed to be a woman. The features are more typically male, and even now that I know I still see it as a masculine image.
