Jaime Hernandez

The 1893 Barber Quarter has one of the higher mintages in the Barber Quarter series and many examples were saved. Therefore, it is one of the more common dates in the series.  Examples up to about VF to XF condition are really common and very affordable that most collectors can afford them. In AU condition they begin to bring a significantly higher premium. In uncirculated MS60 to MS64 condition they are scarce. In MS65 they are very scarce. And in MS66 condition there are very few examples available. MS67 or higher condition they are extremely rare.
