You're right, Dale, Barber was very upset about being passed over. In my opinion I'm glad he was because the Barber designs are very much lacking. One of my least favorite series.

I agree, not too inspiring.  However with the passing of enough time they have become interesting and desirable in their own right, artistic merit aside. For instance, I love the Washington Quarter series although Dead President coins are not my idea of what coins should depict. Not even sure I have a single Barber coin...I will look...looks like I have one well worn 1902 Barber Dime (Liberty Head).
