The Barber quarter, also known as the Liberty Head quarter, was a United States coin that was minted from 1892 to 1916. It was designed by Charles E. Barber, the chief engraver of the United States Mint at the time. The Barber quarter replaced the Seated Liberty quarter, which had been in circulation since 1838.

 

The Barber quarter is made of 90% silver and 10% copper, and it has a diameter of 24.3 mm. On the obverse side of the coin, there is a depiction of Lady Liberty with a laurel wreath on her head and the word "LIBERTY" inscribed above her. On the reverse side, there is an eagle with outstretched wings and a shield on its chest. The eagle is surrounded by 13 stars, representing the original 13 colonies of the United States.

 

The Barber quarter was minted in several different locations, including Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco. The mint mark can be found on the reverse side of the coin, underneath the eagle. The Barber quarter is a popular coin among collectors, and its value can vary depending on its condition and rarity. Some of the most valuable Barber quarters include those minted in San Francisco in 1901 and 1913, as well as those with mint marks that were stamped over other mint marks, known as over-mintmarks. Overall, the Barber quarter is a beautiful and historically significant coin that is cherished by many numismatists.
