Barber Quarters

Barber Quarters of the United States
Minted from 1892 to 1916

The Liberty Head or Barber quarter was designed by Charles E. Barber, and was minted from 1892 until 1916. The Barber designs can be found on the dime and half dollar also during that period. In 1891, Edward O. Leech, the Mint Director appointed by Congress to approve coin designs, started a competition. There would be a cash prize for the winner as well as the notoriety of having designed a United States coin. However, artists wanted no part of this project, too below their standards I suppose. So Leech had Barber design the new coins and they were quickly approved by President Benjamin Harrison.
