  • Description:

    With one of the lowest mintages in the series, the 1911-D Barber Quarter is a part of a very low mintage of only 933,600! Considered to be in very fine condition, the 1911-D Barber Quarter contains a worn surface, with main image details somewhat lacking. The 1911-D Barber Quarter features the "D" mint-mark, indicating it was minted at the Denver Mint. Compared to the other US Mint branches, the Denver Mint was young when it started producing silver dollars. Only established in 1906, the Denver Mint mainly focused on commemorative coins but also participated in the Barber Half Dollar production. In 1921, the Denver joined forces with its sister branches to help produce the Morgan silver dollar, that was soon changed to the Peace silver dollar. Since the Denver Mint was established much later than the other mints, its participation in major coin collections was limited causing collectors to put any silver coin with a "D" mint-mark at the top of their collecting list. To this day, the Denver Mint holds the reputation of lead coin producer in the world!

    In just the short ten years as Chief Engraver, Barber was responsible for a history-breaking coin design. William Barber served as the Chief Engraver, to the US Mint, from 1869-1879, before passing the torch to his son, Charles Barber. Being one of the only designs to grace all current denominations, the Barber design was inspired by the Grecian goddess, Liberty, who has been admired and loved by warriors since the beginning of time. Liberty wears an Acanthus leaf cap as a crown, which was very common in ancient Greece, and the "United States of America," and the coin's mint date are also simply stamped on the obverse. 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. The olive branches represent peace and the arrows represent battle, which is oftentimes necessary in order to achieve peace.
