Moonlight Mint's 1916 Fantasy Barber Half

This is truly a beautiful piece.

See “1916” Barber Half Dollar – Production Blog for mintage figures.  This one is Die State 1, before the reverse die crack developed.  As I write this, there has not yet been another die produced - I suppose that will depend upon demand.

I ended up with two of these due to a shipping error. I contacted Daniel and he offered to let me keep the second for $40.00.  I felt that was unfair, so sent him $50.00 :)

Both have the "DOLAR" error on the insert - Daniel says that has been corrected.

Another die was made after 260 of these were produced.
