Description & Analysis

Coinage was in high demand in New Orleans in 1896. Nearly 1.5 million Barber quarters were struck at the branch mint there that year, but most were immediately placed into circulation. Due to this, the 1896-O Barber quarter is quite rare in any grade above XF. However, some were clearly plucked from circulation as there are superb gem examples known.
