Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint's delivery of Seated Quarters dropped to a mere 191,140 business strikes in 1863. This is a well struck year with Mint State survivors (particularly those from this die marriage) displaying razor sharp striking definition and bountiful mint frost. The problem for today's specialists is that there are not nearly enough high grade 1863-P Quarters to go around.
