Description & Analysis

The 1860-S quarter is similar to most of the other S-mint denominations from this decade. The mintage was not notably low, in this case 56,000 pieces produced, but it was apparently calculated to fulfill the needs for regional commerce. Problem coins are frequently seen on this issue.
