Volume #20 in Whitman's best-selling Bowers Series covers three classic U.S. coin denominations: the dimes, quarters, and half dollars designed by Charles E. Barber, chief engraver of the U.S. Mint. These classic silver coins were first made in 1892, and their production lasted to the eve of America's entry into World War I. In this colorfully illustrated book, the workhorses of late-19th and early-20th-century American commerce are given the famous Q. David Bowers treatment: insightful study, rich historical background, and detailed data analysis. Bowers lays out everything you need to know to be a smart collector. You'll learn the backstage goings-on that led to the coins' creation, why they barely made a splash when first issued, and why they weren't mourned when they passed into history. In recent years the scene has changedBarber's silver coinage is among the more popular of U.S. series, with many enthusiasts.
