Barber Half Dollars Very Good
The Barber design wasn't loved but not hated by the public when it was first released in 1892. This design was created by Chief Engraver, William Barber, and graced the US dime, quarter, and half dollar until 1916. The Seated Liberty was the design, at the time, and Mint Director, Edward Leech desired to change the design for a new era. Leech finally approached Barber and agreed on a design that suited both of their distinct tastes. The Very Good Barber Half Dollars have a good amount of abrasion, with Liberty's headpiece and facial details greatly lacking. The heraldic eagle's feathers are also too worn to notice each distinct feather. Despite the large amounts of wear on the surface of the coin, Very Good Barber Half Dollars still contain a readable date on their obverse.
