DESCRIPTION Exceptional Gem 1906 Half DollarOnly 2 Finer at PCGS1906 Barber Half Dollar. MS-66 (PCGS). CAC.
Soft pinkish-silver iridescence blends with mint frost on both sides of this attractive Barber half dollar. Silky smooth surfaces border on pristine, the strike is razor sharp to full in virtually all areas. Just 2 coins have been graded finer by PCGS and only a single piece ranks finer across all services, asserting this as one of the very finest known survivors.
A mintage of 2.6 million coins and an above average rate of survival have made the 1906 one of the more available Barber half dollars in Mint State. However, most certified examples grade no finer than MS-64, with MS-65 coins scarce and anything finer a noteworthy condition rarity. Indeed, this specimen is solidly in the Condition Census for the issue and would be an excellent addition to any collection or advanced Registry Set.PCGS# 6504.
