Barber Quarter (1892 - 1916)
When it comes to collecting Barber Quarters, coin collectors especially look for the 2 varieties of reverse: Type I (1892 only) with the eagle's wing covering only half of E in UNITED; and Type II (1892-1916) with the wing covering most of E in UNITED and the other wing overlapping much of R in AMERICA. Type I coins are scarcer than Type II. Very Fine Barber Quarters are scarce, and Extremely Fine pieces are very rare. AU and Uncirculated pieces are scarcer yet and brilliant Uncirculated coins are very rare. Proofs of all date are available at a higher premium. The date the Barber Quarter collector looks for is the 1901-S quarter - a major 20th century rarity. The 1896-S and 1913-S are also key dates, and costly in any grade.
