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.
Roll of 40 AG or better.
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.
A pleasing example of this scarce date.
CAC. Very attractive and nearly a full Good.
Strong detail and problem-free with a trace of luster remaining on attractive light silver-gray surfaces.
