Notes:
"1910 has the lowest Barber quarter production of any year except 1913. 1910-P is far from an easy date to acquire. Because it's priced only a little above common, it sometimes gets used as a Type coin thus reducing its availability to the Barber collector. This coin usually has a soft strike and decent, satiny luster."¹
