  • Description:

    The Barber Quarter collection is a fun series for collectors. Partly due to the various size mintages, collectors are able to split their budget between the affordable, high mintages dates, and the more pricey low mintages years. The Barber Quarters were heavily circulated, leaving few to actually be uncirculated. The Circulated Silver Barber Quarters are in a small bag and consists of 100 coins. Each quarter has a full date and its obverse is in good condition. The reverse will be heavily worn, with words barely readable.

    When the Seated Liberty Half Dollar had run its course, the Mint Director Edward Leech, wanted to hold a competition for the next coinage design. Adding the appeal of a cash prize for the winner, the local turnout was a bit underwhelming. The artists that were invited to participate wanted a different prize, under different terms, and withdrew when their needs weren't met. Leech resorted to inside the mint, wherein he worked with the Chief Engraver at the time, to construct a new design. The Chief Engraver, William Barber, was approved by president, Benjamin Harrison, to move forward with the Barber coinage. From 1892-1916, the Barber design reigned on the US dime, quarter, and half dollar; although the half dollar was stopped a few years before. The public and artistic opinion of the Barber design was mixed and was phased out in 1915.
