Description & Analysis

The Barber design was unpopular with contemporary collectors, and while numismatists of the time had little influence on business-strike mintages, their orders for proofs shrank significantly between 1892 and 1897. In the latter year, production of proof Barber quarters sank to a then-series low of 731 specimens, and after that, mintages rebounded somewhat. Not until 1904 did the Mint receive fewer orders for silver proof sets.
