Code 39 is known as Code 3 of 9 which is the most used barcode and able to scan by every barcode scanner. In this code, every single character has 5 bars and 4 spaces in total 9 characters. Out of total 9 characters, 3 characters are always wide. It can encode 26 uppercase letters, 10 digits and 7 special characters.
