Barber quarters were issued from 1892 to 1916. They were designed by Charles Barber and struck in Philadelphia, Denver, New Orleans, and San Francisco.
1896-S, 1901-S and 1913-S are the rarest dates of Barber Quarters. A 1901-S Barber Quarter demands several thousand dollars in even the lowest grade and is by far the rarest coin in the Barber Quarter series.
Very well struck with a cream-white core and a touch of faint gold toning.
Wonderful rich toning. The obverse centers around golden russet with a peripheral ring of rainbow. The reverse has a crescent of multi-color blend. The area encompassing the eagle and stars is primarily white. Only 5 have graded numerically higher at PCGS.
Well struck and lustrous with a silver-gray center and delicate toning at the borders.
Highly reflective white surfaces and a needle-sharp strike.
CAC. A remarkable superb gem with blast white luster, incredible deep mirrored surfaces and very heavy mint frost on the devices. The resulting 'black and white' cameo makes this a memorable Barber Quarter.
Clear date and mint-mark on this 'key' date Barber Quarter.
CAC. Very attractive and nearly a full Good.
One of the 'keys' to the set with just 188,039 minted. This is a pleasing example with solid detail.
Well detailed for the grade. One of the 'keys' to the series.
Strong detail and problem-free with a trace of luster remaining on attractive light silver-gray surfaces.

Flashy white luster and nice for the grade.
Blast white and sharply struck with nice clean surfaces.

CAC. Blast white and very attractive. The perfect coin for a nice type set.
Crisp white surfaces with a pleasing cameo contrast.
CAC. One of many New Orleans mint quarters that are much more difficult to find in mint state than the mintage figures might suggest. This example has vibrant luster over pleasing clean surfaces that show light champagne toning.
