|Although the mintage of the 1909-D Barber Quarter is relatively high, the coin more difficult to find in gem and higher grades than its mintage would indicate. The present example is an amazing coin. The coin is deeply toned on both the obverse and reverse and exhibits a multitude of colors which radiate as the underlying luster passes through. Although a slight weakness in the strike is noted, this coin is all there when it comes to overall eye appeal. Very few coins of this date have been certified at this level of quality and very few of those, if any, are likely to have the eye appeal of the present example.
