It's only my second one, finally found a Barber half a couple of months ago in a field at an old homesite.

Congrats on your oldest Barber Quarter !
Seems like most of the Barber Quarter's that I and other's have found have 1900' dates on them - I would say this due to the increase of the coins minted in later years .

Thanks for the kudos, most the barbers I have found been from 1900's this one makes me smile. Plus I was born in 1953. 20201222_120945.jpg 20201222_121005.jpg p

Very nice find! Pretty low mintage, less than 1.5 million and worth a few bucks, plus it's got a really nice color to it- Congrats!
