Very nice find. The unworn condition seems to indicate it was stored someplace for a long time.

Amazing this can be found in change 122 years after it was made.

In the 70s my grandfather had laundromats, so we went through about $1000.00 of change each week. Never found a Barber that I remember. The oldest Nickel found was a 1913 Buffalo (but almost all found were dateless), oldest dime a 1916 Mercury, oldest quarters were no date SLQs (never found a dated one!), and the oldest half a 1920-something Walker...at the time these oldest finds were only 54 years old as compared to your 122 year old find!
