The 1895-O Barber Quarter has a mintage of over 2.8 million examples struck, however far fewer examples actually exist. Our PCGS CoinFacts condition Census estimates about 2,500 examples remain in existence. And the PCGS population Report shows about 300 examples have been graded in all grades combined. So, despite its large mintage, it seems far fewer examples were saved. Coins in Uncirculated condition are scarce, especially in MS65 or higher.
