This coin was sold in our January 2019 Sale. It brought $22,325.00 then. The collector who bought it wanted the FINEST MS Barbers for his Type set. He replaced this coin with the 1905 PCGS MS68+ CAC piece that is universally acknowledged to be the FINEST MS Barber Half that exists. All we can do is shake our heads about both coins! Here is our auction description:

FROM THE FORMULA 1 COLLECTION. Ex Akers and Duckor. With the David Akers and Steven Duckor pedigree, you instantly know this coin is going to be all there and then some! Tied for FINEST graded, this SUPERB 1900 half dollar will delight any Barber half dollar collector.

This magnificent coin is fully PROOFLIKE, in fact, at first glance, you might even confuse it for a deeply and originally toned GEM. Aqua-teal, emerald, pale gold, and champagne toning blend with hints of lilac and rose. The devices are sharply impressed and offer full definition on both sides, and they are frosted, giving it a nearly cameo-like allure. A SUPERB coin bound for the FINEST of Barber halves.

PCGS 2, NGC 0, CAC 2. This is the 1900 in MS67 to have ever sold in auction. In the Duckor sale, this coin realized $32,200 (2010 ANA auction). After that, it sold for $19,975 in the October 2015 sale of the Greensboro Collection. Today, this coin will likely sell for more, as the current PCGS Price Guide value is listed at $25,500. With NONE finer, this magnificent coin will be put into a world class, SUPERB set! Cert. Number 16398775

You just can’t go wrong with a piece that is that HIGH END. Plus, we were made aware this piece was one the late mega dealer , David Akers favorites. That says a lot.

This will be a tremendous addition to ANY SUPERB GEM set.
