|Although the 1909-S Barber Quarter has a relatively low mintage, it is not nearly as difficult to find as the New Orleans example. That said, the coin is a tough coin to find in gem condition or better. Unlike the famous San Francisco cents of 1909, the 1909-S Barber Quarter was obviously not saved in quantity. The present example is a beautiful coin that shows great looking cartwheel luster. The coin also exhibits the slightest bit of toning around the rims. Only a couple of coins exist of this date in higher grade.
