DLRC #: 269559 // PCGS #: 6479

A lovely, highly lustrous golden coin with claims to the higher grade. Surfaces are nearly perfect with one tiny nick near Liberty's upper lip keep it from possibly being in a higher grade. A beauty. A classic Barber half rarity, one of the really tough dates to locate in this quality. CAC approved for quality.
