Description & Analysis

This low-mintage entry in the Barber Quarter series is scarce to rare across all grades. Examples grading Fine and higher are especially elusive and remain on many collectors' want lists. Mint State pieces are rare, with gems being particularly so.

There are no varieties known for 1897-O, and all examples have the centered mintmark position used for all New Orleans pieces 1896-1909.
