My dealer surprised me with about 40 + Barber quarters lot he had in bank box. Commons and not so common. In 10 minutes I had to stop due to appointment but laid 12 to the side and brought these baby's home.
Will post some more on the other dates 5 of them are PQ toned all are easily straight grades. I digress, check out those shifty mintmarks on these 2 originals. Its been a few months since I had my hands on a dealers old back up box...and he has 25 Barber dimes will go through in a.m.
Enjoy, and thoughts on grade?
Didn't take them out as am hesitant to soak them in acetone, truth be told acetone has erased completely dynamite toning on 3 of 70 barbers I rinsed last winter. Not a high number but the blue and black and red were natural and should have been left alone. Anyone else had coins where acetone backfired?
These are possible to find but difficult, other collectors watched me and were amused at how quickly I laid down 12 coins, paid cash, then out the door. Not many barber fanatics in my parts of the woods. Their all going to ANACS in 2 weeks.

Both look like textbook G-06 to me.

First coin (centered mm), solid G-06, reverse almost VG-08
Second coin (mm right), weaker, but still G-06.

Nice eye appeal and circulation cameos. Great buys!

I had to do a double take at they look like the same coin. I am at 06 on both. Nice examples for grade.

I just learned something to bookmark in my brain - the 1895-S quarter has the bouncing mint mark and so does the 1895-O.

Busy day today, finally sat down popped them all out and decided acetone was needed. All had that gooie filmy gas station feel, 30 minutes in acetone cured all but 3 of that. Other ones get the overnight treatment to get the grit out of date numerals. and those arrows. Pretty good journeyman on spiffng these old thin plugs learned the hard way: don't ever never use toothpick, thorn from rosebush, coin-care, rub with felt cloth, look at too hard etc. etc.
The only way I ever was successful at on these is a dip in acetone, dry, then those crackly 2 2 safe flips. My claim to fame was stapling all my beautiful Barber quarters dated with the rarity rating and mintage, too bad I ruined a nice VG-10 1892 P with a gash on her rim $30.00 coin sown to melt in a split second.
Will start loading a few posts with my dozen pick ups. These things are not valuable per-see but their tough to find in attractive G +
