1897-S Barber Quarter

Ranked as the fifth lowest mintage of the series at 542,229 pieces, the 1897-S Barber Quarter is one of several semi-key dates of the series. Most frequently the coin will be found in well circulated condition, with availability significantly curtailed at grades Fine and above. This issue commands a premium across all grade levels. Even the well worn piece shown above graded About Good would fetch a price of $40 to $50.
