Shave and a Haircut Times Two!

The old ditty "shave and haircut, two bits" explains in a nutshell why these 90% silver Barber Half Dollars are so hard to find today. Fifty cents was a lot of money when they were minted between 1892 and 1916, and it was a lot of money again during the Great Depression. Almost all of these halves wore down to nothing. Finding them in Very Fine and Brilliant Uncirculated condition today is a real challenge, and getting enough to offer here was a huge effort. We suggest you snap these up before we post the "Sold Out" notice.

Very Fine (VF) coins show moderate wear on the high points of their designs. All of the major details are still visible, but they're not sharp.
