Barber Quarters - Designed by Mint Engraver Charles Barber, the Barber quarter became a prominent aspect of everyday life for Americans at the end of the 19th Century. It was originally intended that a public contest would be held to choose the design for the new twenty-five cent piece. This contest was deemed a financial as well as artistic failure as none of the designs submitted by the public were judged as worthy to represent this new coin.
The 1896-S, 1901-S and 1913-S are the key dates of this popular series.
