    Q. David Bowers, award-winning author, provides new insight into US Mint engraver Charles E. Barber's 1892-1916 silver coins.

    At the outset of an exhilarating period of invention, these coins were the workhorses of American business. Bowers follows the history of Barber's coinage from the Gilded Age and the Progressive Era to the eve of America's entry into World War I, as well as the inventions of record players, cars, and moving pictures.

    The Guide Book of Barber Silver Coins includes grading and sensible collecting advice, retail pricing in up to 12 grades (including Proofs), and a detailed examination of every date and mintmark for Barber dimes, quarters, and half dollars. Appendices delve into the personal lives of artist Charles Barber, as well as the mints where he worked.
