    I possess one Barber Quarter. I bought it in a slab (as you can see in the pictures), but it has since been set free to live a life in an air-tite. Another (see Barber Dime) real coin that is a perfect example of what I collect. Plus it's from New Orleans - like me!

    And yes, I drink whisky.

    Oh, btw, guess the grade that was on the slab. Winner gets nothing.

    I'm at 30 or 35 as well. A very nice match for the dime.

    Nice coin. I think the old circulated coins have much more character than the bright, shiny versions. It is easier to picture how many hands have handled them. I have only 1 Barber from New Orleans, a half and i couldn't guess at how many people have held her

    That quarter may have bought a shot of good whiskey in 1902 :woot:

    The coin retains the requisite detail in several areas that usually draw my eye . . . the denticles on both sides, the three "corners" of the shield, the eagle's neck feathers. I would have liked to see traces of luster in protected areas, possibly subdued by the photos, but the coin looks so nice that I ignored that.

    Very nice coin!

    I would've guessed 35 as well.
     
  20. What is your favorite whiskey? Mine is Blanton's, but it is a little hard to find in my neck of the woods. So I also drink Buffalo Trace, which is made by the same distillery but is easier to find. Steve.
