  • Description:

    The 1894-S Barber Quarter is in fine condition, exhibiting wear on the entire surface of the coin, with intricate details lacking. All individual coins are packaged in coin sleeves to ensure protection while in transit. The 1894-S Barber Quarter has a mintage of 2.6 million and is accessible in most conditions. Barber used the Head of Liberty to grace the obverse of the Barber coin series. Liberty's look is inspired by a Grecian Goddess and she wears an Acanthus leaf cap as a crown. "United States of America," and the coin's mint date are also simply stamped on the obverse of the Barber Quarter. The reverse contains the nation's official seal, which is of a heraldic eagle holding a shield. Each of the eagle's talons are grasping a symbolic gesture: olive branches and arrows. This design is still used on modern day coinage and represents the strength of the nation, while understanding the price that needs to be paid for freedom.

    The 1894-S Barber Quarter was minted at the San Francisco Mint and carries a "S" mint-mark. The San Francisco Mint was first established in 1854, as a result of the famous gold rushes. This mint is known for not only making the most coins, out of the four mints, but they are also admired by their quality of coin as well. When comparing a coin minted at San Francisco and one minted at New Orleans, there is quite a noticeable difference. The strike is stronger, the designs last longer even when circulated, and the mint-mark is more prominent.
