    I read in the Red Book that in 1892 there are two types of Barber Quarter. The first type has trhe wings of the eagle covering only some of the E's and the second type has the wings of the eagle covering most of the E's.
    I am looking for the first and second type to compare the coverage of the E's as well as to compare the location of the mintmarks. I believe that the mintmarks are located in the direct center under the eagles tail feathers on one of the types and is off to the side slightly on the other type.
    If you have these coins can you please post them? Thanks.

    After further research I discovered that there is a type 3 barber quarter where the wing extends past the E inUNITED. Does anyone have a photo of that?
