DESCRIPTION Important 1911-S Barber 50CDesirable Old Green Holder1911-S Barber Half Dollar. MS-64 (PCGS). CAC. OGH.
Blushes of pale champagne-apricot iridescence are all that keep this lustrous and frosty example from full brilliance. Conservatively graded at the MS-64 level, in our opinion, the surfaces are silky smooth and not far from a full Gem Mint State rating. Just 11 coins have been graded finer by CAC, emphasizing the challenging nature of this issue at the highest levels of quality.
One of numerous underrated Barber half dollars in Mint State, the 1911-S has a mintage of 1,272,000 pieces and represents a steep decline from the 1.9 million pieces struck in San Francisco the previous year. It is seldom offered finer than the lowest reaches of Mint State and becomes very scarce approaching Gem. This superior example is an important opportunity for advanced Registry Set participants.
