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.
Thick frosty white luster rests on excellently struck surfaces. A beautiful first-year example.
Very well struck with a cream-white core and a touch of faint gold toning.
CAC. Excellent white mirror and frost contrast. Hints of subtle amber amplifies already great eye appeal.
A very bold strike with crisp white luster and just the barest trace of gold mostly at the rim.
Very flashy with a bright champagne-gold core and delicate iridescent toning at the borders. 880 minted.
CAC. An exquisite beauty with deeply frosted devices and highly reflective fields that create an excellent 'black and white' effect. A light touch of honey hue adds depth and eye appeal to otherwise brilliant white surfaces. A true stand-out.
Well struck with clean surfaces and vibrant satiny mint luster that has a soft golden glow. A scarce date that is very elusive in mint state.
Brilliant luster and a sharp strike.
CAC. An attractive flashy proof with heavy frost on the design and deep reflective fields. 846 struck.
CAC. High-end for the grade with pleasing light gray surfaces. The obverse grades a full Good while the reverse is AG+.
Thick frosty white luster with a touch of peripheral color.
CAC. Blast white and a needle-sharp strike. A coin that appears nicer than the assigned grade!
CAC. An attractive brilliant proof with a very light champagne tint. Finding a near-white proof Barber Quarter with a CAC sticker can be challenging!
A thin layer of pale golden tint rests upon beautifully mirrored surfaces. Quite pleasing.
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.
Blast white and well struck with a semi proof-like obverse and minimal abrasions.
A superb gem that borders on perfection with blast white luster and incredible eye appeal. The strike is razor sharp and the devices show considerable mint frost.
