Description & Analysis

When evaluating the desirability of boldly struck Type Two quarters, misinformed collectors become fixated upon Liberty's head and ignore the other highpoints of the design. Noted numismatic author J. H. Cline, however, states that this D-mint issue is the first of the Type Two deliveries to display prominent striking incompleteness throughout the design. When grading extant representatives, Cline cautions collectors that, 'Most features are moderately well struck with some concession to be made [for grading], such as: weak inner shield, but strong date and folds in gown or vice versa.' It is not, therefore, hard for us to imagine a Mint State representative of this issue with Full Head definition and below average eye appeal.
