Why add this 1915 Silver Barber Quarter to your collection?
The Silver Barber Quarter series was a product of the United States Mint from 1892 until 1916. The series is named for its designer, Charles E. Barber, who served as the Mint's sixth Chief Engraver from 1880-1917. Barber's rendition of Liberty appeared on the circulating dime, quarter and half dollar during the same time period.
The Barber Quarter Design
Obverse: Liberty is personified as a young woman on the obverse, accompanied by thirteen stars. Her head is wreathed with a garland of olive branches, over a Phrygian cap with a "LIBERTY" inscribed headband. The inscription "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" curves above, with the date of issue "1915" below. The design is credited to Barber with the initial "B" at the truncation of Liberty's neck.
Reverse: The reverse features a heraldic eagle design modeled after the Great Seal of the U.S. at the time of the series' introduction. The eagle is depicted grasping an olive branch and bundle of arrows, with thirteen stars scattered above. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "QUARTER DOLLAR," with a banner held in the eagle's beak bearing the declaration "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
