First-year issues are often the holy grail of any series. For others, securing a last-year issue is the dream. With this attractive set, you get both! This two-coin set includes both the first-year 1892 and last-year 1916 Silver Barber Quarter. These are the coins that jingled in pockets more than 100 years ago and were last struck 16 years before the creation of the first Washington Quarter. Perhaps that’s why so many people don’t even know these coins ever existed!
These coins get their name from their designer, Charles E. Barber, the 6th Chief Engraver at the United States Mint. The obverse features a bust of Lady Liberty with a triple headdress – a cap, a laurel wreath and a tiny coronet inscribed with her name. Struck in 90% fine silver, these coins are a great find. Most circulated heavily and were worn down or melted for their silver content during times of high silver values. Now you can get two key date coins in one terrific set that comes housed in a display box and accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity. Get this great first-and-last set now!
