Would probably be a lot more if it wasn't so hard and expensive to consistently find really nice ones
Having said that, there are lots and lots of mint state slabbed Barber dimes, quarters and half dollars but nice ones get pricey quickly because there is some demand that the supply can't quite satisfy.
I don't know where you've been looking but I see MS and PR slabbed Barbers all the time at Heritage Auctions and Great Collections Auctions.
You can get somewhat of a feel for what's available by visiting the PCGS and NGC population reports for the Barber series. Pick a common date and grade(s) and look up the population of slabbed coins. This won't account for raw coins but you didn't really exhibit an interest in those.
I believe there must be a core group of buyers that love Barber coins. Some of them realize hefty prices which you can see if you look at PCGS and NGC coin info. I love the design, especially of the half dollar Barber. Thanks for sharing.
I like that term "Working Money" very descriptive!
