Description & Analysis

In the broader context of quarter eagles, the 1904 is not an issue that draws attention to itself. While it is a readily available issue through most grades, including better Mint State designations, the 1904 is rarely selected by type collectors due to the larger populations of subsequent Liberty quarter eagle issues. In the stratospheric Superb Gem realm, however, even the seemingly plentiful 1904 becomes a condition rarity.
