Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint changed production methods for proof coins in 1902, polishing the dies so the devices were as reflective as the fields on most specimens seen. Collectors missed the cameo devices of earlier years, but proof sets remained popular until the matte proof designs were introduced later in the decade. A fairly large mintage of 193 Liberty Head quarter eagles was achieved in 1902, but most specimens seen today are in lower proof grades. At the Gem level, the issue is decidedly rare.
