Barber Quarter Values are Conditional

You have a better chance of finding a better "grade" coin than a rare date. An 1911-S for example, in well worn "Good" condition is a $6.19 coin. If yours is in the better "Extremely Fine" condition it quickly becomes a $135 coin. Many examples of a wide price range exist.

To accurately determine your Barber quarter values compare your coins to the grading images below and assign each a grade. Then... check the coin values listings.

A full "LIBERTY" spelled out on the headband separates a coin in "Fine" condition from one in the lesser "Good" condition. On the reverse all of "E PLURIBUS UNUM" across the ribbon must show.

If your coin is crisp and sharp in all details you have a highly desirable Barber Quarter. Most in extremely fine "XF" condition are worth $50 or more.

Barber Quarter Grading

Is your coin very nice and possibly a very high grade? Many small details come into play in the higher grades, especially the uncirculated grades, affecting the value. If you are not sure, there is help available.

Collectors and dealers consider PCGS and NGC as leaders in coin grading services. They both authenticate and grade your coin. The small fee you pay provides assurance you understand and receive the full value of your coin.

It is also helpful to know grading a coin is not an exact science. It is your opinion, dealers and collectors have their own opinions... and they can all differ slightly.

Check a few rare coin dealers and auction house listings, look for those offering Barber Head Quarters for sale. Their listings and prices usually include a notation of the NGC or PCGS assigned grade. Additionally, these coin dealers are potential buyers of your coins.

High Values and Mintmarks

Barber Quarter Mintmark Location

The rarest Barber quarter was minted at the San Francisco mint in 1901. The "S" mintmark is located on the reverse just below the tail feathers of the eagle. Find a 1901-S in your group and you are holding a $2,500 coin.

Other mint marks, "O" for New Orleans and "D" for the Denver mint are all located on the reverse in the same place. No mintmark was used by the Philadelphia mint.

Examine your coins closely, many of the mint marked coins carry a surprising premium value.

Consider your group of coins as the beginning of a coin collection. The start of an enjoyable and rewarding hobby. If that is not for you, one successful approach is to sell all your coins and use the proceeds to buy one nice rare coin. The one you were hoping to find in the box. Pass the thrill of a rare coin on to your children.
