  • Description:

    Usually, Lady Liberty is depicted as a tall and slender woman who resembles a Greek goddess. Liberty's history dates back to Greek mythology, wherein she was a goddess among the warrior and is the reason why she is always portrayed as a Grecian goddess. Lady Liberty represents everything this nation has fought for and continues to fight for: liberty, freedom, democracy. Her importance can be compared to a president's importance, wherein she is also included on US currency along with certain presidents' portraits. Her clothes are a light-weight Grecian robe and she is almost always holding another patriotic symbol, such as a torch or olive branches. Since the Mint Act of 1792, all US Mint branches are required to include some symbol of Liberty on the currency.

    The 1895-S Barber Quarter contains a low mintage of just 1.7 million and can be a difficult coin to find. Being in very good condition, the 1895-S Barber Quarter exhibits heavy wear, with details lacking such as Liberty's intricate headpiece or the eagle's feathers. The Barber Quarter series is one of the most underrated collections out there. The Barber Half Dollar replaced the Seated Liberty coinage, by preference of the Mint Director, Edward Leech. After a failed attempt to offer a friendly competition among local artists, Leech resorted to Chief Engraver, William Barber, to come up with the design. Barber's design extended to the dime, quarter, and half dollar; being one of the only coin designs to serve on all currency. For extra protection during shipment, the 1895-S Quarter will be packaged in a coin flip. The Barber Quarter was forged from a metallic alloy of 90% silver and 10% copper and is a part of the highly popular 90% silver coinage.
