Looking at the reverse rims, I'll say G-04, some will say G-06.

I'm on the G-4 side.
The rim on the reverse is slightly worn into STATES.
But not enough wear to be an AG-3.
But generally the obverse has more weight in a coin's grade.
So a G-6 grade is possible.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

This is a bit of a tough one, because the obverse is clearly a G-6 while the reverse is G-4 at best. I think that ANACS will call the coin a G-6, weighing the obverse more heavily. Still, I could see the grade going either way.

As usually the obverse is better than the reverse. G-6 at best.

I'm at G4 on this one. Granted the obverse is stronger, but the reverse legends worn into the rim at the top of the coin can't be ignored - and that definitely IMO holds this out of the G6 camp.
Take a look at my other hobby ... http://www.jk-dk.art
Too many hobbies .... too much work .... not enough time.

G-6. Nice example of this date with the reverse not worn down excessively into the rim.

Looks like G4 to me based on the reverse. Close G6 obverse.

This is a choice looking G+ Barber the obverse is VG-8 nice amount of wreath and L T Y of Liberty showing and denticles all the way around obverse very nice. True to form the reverse is 1.5 grades lower with weak rims and wear into the feilds. On this one it doesn't matter a solid G-6 original is a tough find and worth full retail. You can sit around watching ebay and GreatCollections David Lawrence etc all you want hoping to buy one like this for $250.00 and I say good luck to you or you can own one like this for the extra hundred bucks.
These are available for a premium and that premium is there for a reason...scarcity. I have them all I've forked out the dough for original G-VG examples and even not so common commons in PQ low grade are 50 + bucks. The 1892 S, 1894 P 1893 S 96-S 97-S I can keep going.
Beautiful honest low grade original key coin, I wouldn't mind that one in my set. For those who prefer NGC and PCGS Barbers over ANACS take a close look at some of their low grade honeys in AG3 - VG they give the reverse a lot of leeway on these and in my opionion ANACS doesn't. There's alot of slick rimmed low grade cleaned Barber Halfs in PCGS slabs. The blue holder grading days of ANACS are over.

The suggestion that this obverse is VG-08 reinforces the steady decline in grading standards over the past 30-40 years. In my days working at a coin shop, this obverse would have been a one-look G06.

Coinfrog- Without a doubt there has been grade inflation.
