For those seeking an affordable way to add bulk amounts of silver to their physical holdings, junk silver is a great option. The name shouldnt fool you. In the United States, junk silver refers to the former circulation denominations issued by the United States, such as silver dollars, dimes, quarters, and half dollars. Each one was previously issued with 90% silver, so even though the designs may be worn, the precious metal value of each remains. Right now, you can get $1 Face Values of 90% Silver Barber Quarters online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of a $1 Face Value of 90% Silver Barber Quarters, Provident Metals ships you a bag containing a total of four US quarters from the Barber Coinage range. The date marks available for this design run from 1892 to 1916. The coins in this listing all contain 90% silver with 10% copper. You will receive either a mixture of date marks in the available range or all four coins with the same date marks. Each one is in Very Good-plus condition, which means the coins have medium to heavy wear visible.
On the obverse of all 90% Silver Barber Quarters is an image of Lady Liberty. This vision of Liberty is inspired by Greco-Roman designs and captures Liberty in right-profile relief with a crown wreath on her head. Inscriptions on this face include 13 stars, In God We Trust above her head, and the date mark below.
The reverse side of the 90% Silver Barber Quarters includes a unique version of the heraldic eagle of the United States. The oldest American coin design, this version was created in 1892 by Charles E. Barber for the Barber Coinage range and featured only on the quarter and half dollar. The bird looks to the left and the talon clutching an olive branch, while the other talon clutches the arrows of war. The national heraldic shield is on its chest and a cluster of 13 stars is featured above its head.
Charles E. Barber was part of a father-son tandem that served consecutive terms as Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. William Barber was the 5th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint and, upon his death in 1870, was succeeded by his son Charles as the 6th Chief Engraver of the United States. Charles E. Barber would hold the position for 37 years until his own death in 1917, leaving behind the Barber Coinage Series as one of his seminal achievements.
