Charles Edward Barber (November 16, 1840[1] February 18, 1917) was the sixth Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 1879 until his death in 1917. He succeeded his father, William Barber, in the position. Barber's best-known designs are the eponymous "Barber" dime, quarter, and half-dollar, as well as the so-called "V" nickel. Some lesser known designs by Barber include the trial copper-nickel cent, trial three-cent piece, and the $4 Stella "Flowing Hair" pieces. He was strongly critical of Augustus St. Gaudens' design of a new double eagle in 1908, and tried hard to stop them being produced.
