GRADING BARBER HALF DOLLARS Grading Standards for Barber Halves from good to very fine.


The History of the Barber Half Dollar (1892-1915):

The first Barber Half Dollar was issued in 1892. The obverse depicted the profile bust of Liberty wearing a cap and laurel wreath. The reverse design was an eagle clutching 13 arrows in its right claw and an olive branch in its left. These half dollar pieces were also called Liberty Head Halves. Since, however, the head of Liberty has appeared on seven different types of U.S. half dollars over the years, the term Barber Half Dollar is officially used to describe this type of 1892-1915.

The Barber Half Dollar was designed by Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber. His same obverse design was also used for the dime and quarter (1892-1916). His initial 'B' appears on the obverse at the truncation of Liberty's neck

The Barber Half Dollar was composed of 90% Silver and 10% Copper. Since pure silver is very soft, copper was added to all circulating silver coins to harden them and prevent excessive wear. Barber Halves had a weight of 12.50 grams, a diameter of 30.6mm, a reeded edge. The edges of most silver coins were reeded to make evident any attempt to shave silver off the coin.


Key to abbreviations used on this page:

O (New Orleans): The 'O' mint mark is located on the reverse below the eagle's tail feathers.

D (Denver): The 'D' mint mark is located on the reverse below the eagle's tail feathers.

S (San Francisco): The 'S' mint mark is located on the reverse below the eagle's tail feathers.

Note: Barber Halves struck in Philadelphia bear no mint mark.
