While San Francisco returned to minting Barber quarters in 1911 after a short hiatus in 1910, the overall production of quarters in 1911 was rather small as compared to virtually year in the series during the first decade of the 20th century. All told, less than 6 million Barber quarters were made in 1911, and, of course, far fewer remain today than when they were made.

Here’s a look at the mintages and values of 1911 Barber quarters:

  • 1911 – 3,720,000; $13

  • 1911-D – 933,600; $16

  • 1911-S – 988,000; $15

  • 1911 proof – 543; $850

*Values are for coins in a grade of Good-4, unless otherwise noted.

Overall, the figures above tell a story of scarcity from the quarters minted at the Denver and San Francisco mints. Less than 1 million quarters were made at either of the two branch mints. Surprisingly, values are prohibitive, at least in the lower grades, for quarters from Denver and San Francisco mints. This may have something to do with the fact that relatively few people today attempt collecting the entire Barber quarter series, which means there are plenty of good deals to be had out there among numismatists who do. Buy the best you can afford, and you may not be sorry down the line.
