Out of my colonial element detecting an old dirt road. Excited about the Barber, my second in a row as I scored a 1902 while last out. The Barber, Standing Liberty, and silver GW's quarters I've found have all been very worn except this 1893. Those coins must have been the real coinage workhorses. The silver makes the Nox 800 sing compared to colonial copper! Back out there tomorrow.

That '93 Barber Quarter looks to be in amazing condition, the details on it are still very sharp. :thumbsup:

1893 Barber Quarters represent the second year of the series, designed by namesake designer Charles E. Barber. The Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, Barber did not actually name the Barber quarter after himself – the series was originally (and is still officially) called the Liberty Head quarter. But numismatists and the public soon nicknamed the coins after him, a somewhat common practice for coins of the day (think of the “Morgan” dollar, which refers to the Liberty Head dollar coin designed by George T. Morgan).

The 1893 Barber Quarter from Philadelphia was the most common coin that year, with more than five million pieces originally minted. The 1893-O and 1893-S Barber quarters are scarcer than their Philadelphia counterpart, but are by no means rare or highly valuable in the lower grades, which is welcome news particularly by Barber series coin collectors who are looking to complete a date-and-mintmark set.

Here’s a rundown of mintage figures for the 1893 Barber quarter:

1893 – 5,444,023
1893-O – 3,396,000
1893-S – 1,454,535
1893 proof – 792

Love those big silvers- Congrats! Hard to tell for sure, but it looks like there's a mintmark on the far right under the eagle's tail on the reverse of the Barber- perhaps an S?
