When the US first issued silver denominations, the vast majority of the coins had 90% silver content by weight. The US quarter was among the long-lasting denominations, along with the dime and half dollar, that feature 90% silver content and 10% copper for a durable circulation product. This continued through the 1964 issue of coins in the US.
Starting in 1965, the United States adopted a new cupro-nickel alloy for its coins. This was a result of the rising price of silver and the fact that it was rendering the face value issued to the coins essentially worthless against the much higher precious metal value of the silver content in the coins.
The obverse face of 90% Silver Barber Quarters in this listing comes with the image of Lady Liberty. This right-profile bust of Liberty was created in 1892 by Charles E. Barber for the dime, quarter, and half dollar. A more masculine vision of Liberty, it depicts the female personification of freedom with a crown wreath on her head.
On the reverse side of 90% Silver Barber Quarters is a version of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Also designed by Barber, this image depicts the American bald eagle with the US national heraldic shield on its chest. The bird clutches arrows in one talon and an olive branch in the other. Its beak clutches a ribbon banner that reads “E Pluribus Unum,” and there is a random cluster of 13 stars over its head.
These 90% Silver Barber Quarters are available to you in a bag of four coins totaling $1 (USD) total in face value. The coins are all in Very Good-plus condition, indicating that each has medium to heavy wear from circulation. We cannot guarantee the specific date marks you will receive in this listing. You could receive coins that all have the same date mark or have various different date marks. Those dates will, however, fall between 1892 and 1916.
