The Barber Quarter is the name for the design used on the US Quarter from 1892 to 1916. The name comes from the designer, Charles E. Barber. Mr. Barber was the Chief Engraver of the United States Mint in 1891 when the mint began to redesign some of the nation’s coin denominations. His Liberty design featured on the dime, quarter, and half dollar and the broader series would go on to carry his name.

The obverse face of 90% Silver Barber Quarters includes the image of Lady Liberty. This bust of Liberty captures her figure in right-profile relief with a crown wreath on her head and her hair up in a bun. There are 13 stars around her figure, a date mark at the bottom, and the national motto above Liberty’s head.
On the reverse side of the 90% Silver Barber Quarters is a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. The eagle is shown with its head facing left and the US national shield on its chest. The bird clutches the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons, while the ribbon through its beak has the phrase “E Pluribus Unum,” or “out of many, one.”
Coins in this listing will come with random date marks and the potential for various different mint marks. Mint marks are located on the reverse of the coins below the heraldic eagle. The Barber Quarters were produced by the New Orleans Mint, Denver Mint, San Francisco Mint, and Philadelphia Mint, with only the Philadelphia coins lacking a mint mark.
