Hello forum members,

I've been working on a set of Barber halves for a while now- I guess about 7 years on and off. I only need one more, maybe you can guess : 1892 O.

I thought I'd share a few picks. I have cracked a few out but most were purchased raw. I am happy I finally found a decent 1892 S in my range. There's a few I'd like to upgrade but overall I'm happy. Surprisingly, at least to me, was how difficult the 05 O was to find-still not 100% pleased but..

As you can see, most are G-VG. It's difficult finding problem free examples in this grade range. Now, back to the search for the 92 O....

Kudos. Nice work tracking down those later, low-mintage halves like 1913, 1914, and 1915-P.

Congrats on a good looking, almost complete set! Great eye appeal for a G-VG set.

Nice going.
Nothing like completing a set.
Get that 1892-O, then sit back and enjoy it.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

That's the easy set, wait until you start the quarter set. Congrats and thanks for sharing.
