In 1909, a twenty-two year old housewife became the first woman to drive across the entirety of the United States. Alice Huyler Ramsey drove the 3,800 miles from Manhattan to San Francisco in fifty-nine days accompanied by her two sisters. This 1909 Barber half dollar recalls a feat that earned Ramsey’s induction as the first woman into the Automotive Hall of Fame in 2000.

The Philadelphia Mint struck proof Half Dollars of the Barber type every year from 1892 through 1915.  The first-year 1892 is a perennial favorite among type collectors, while the 1913, 1914 and 1915 enjoy strong market demand due to the limited mintages of their identically dated business strike counterparts.
