This is my first Barber half dollar and my first Barber coin as well. Please excuse the poor picture quality as I am using my cell phone camera at this time. She is from 1905. She has been graded by ANACS (G6) but I had to crop the slab out to try to get it to upload. Oh, and her mint? New Orleans. I know, maybe not the best specimen but I couldn't turn her down.

That is a great first step into the Barber half dollar series. Is it your first O mintmark too?

Looks to be accurately graded. I have an almost complete collection of these (still searching for an 1892 O) in G-F. The 1905 O was one of the hardest to find in that range and at a good price. It was a long search. I like your example. Great start!

Wow the 1905-O Half Dollar was my very first coin I received to start me off on my life long journey into the world of coins . Congrats on your piece. BTW only 505,000 minted that year at New Orleans .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

That is a good specimen! I have a 1907-O that I picked out of a junk silver bin for cheap in around the same shape.

Fyi I looked at this coin under two different loupes, one regular 30x and one with LED. Both showed a scratch just over where the ear lobe would be, which I believe to be very superficial. That being said, I also feel that the ANACS grade is accurate.&

Aquiring a "first" is always exciting, no matter what stage of collecting you're at.

I still remember the first "S" mint mark coin I found in circulation when I started collecting as a kid in the '60's (I lived on the east coast at the time), and being so excited about it. My first "CC" coin was a Morgan dollar my grandmother gave me around '71. Now, as an old collector I'm hunting for my first "C" and "D" (Dahlonega) mint mark gold coins, and whenever I get either I'll be excited again!

I'm trying to remember what the C and CC stand for. I know they are mint marks but I can't recall where. Seems like one was in the Carolinas.
