It’s All About The “O”

Barber Half Dollar

The coin pictured about is a PCGS MS65 1892-O Micro O Half Dollar, the rarest and most desirable of all the Barber Half Dollar varieties.  This one is owned by Dr. and Mrs. Peter K. Shireman and resides in their PCGS Registry Set (currently ranked #1).

“Micro O” is an apt name for this variety, as it describes a mintmark that is substantially smaller than normal.
