As a new coin type, the 1892 Barber Half Dollar was saved in large numbers by both numismatists and the general public. The former also boosted sales of proof coins to a level that would not again be achieved during the run of this series. Survivors are numerous, though many have been impaired through poor storage and improper cleaning. Gems are nonetheless fairly available, at least for brilliant and Cameo examples. This example was purchased as a PF64 in an old green holder. Sent to PCGS for reconsideration and came back PF64+ Cameo.
