The Barber Quarter also known as the Liberty Head quarter (because it contains the head of lady liberty), was part of the Barber coin series that ran from 1892 to 1916 and was used in Dimes, Quarters, and Half Dollars.
They are called Barber Quarters because the engraving or image was created by the United States Chief Engraver at the time...Charles E. Barber. Makes sense right?
We personally enjoy collecting the Barber coinage as they are fairly rare, and most members of the general public has never seen one. They are pretty rare.
