Description & Analysis

This issue's mintage of 2,440 pieces is the lowest of any quarter eagle minted after 1855. Oddly enough, novice gold collectors have pursued the higher mintage, less rare 1894 at the expense of the 1892. Knowledgeable numismatists, however, realize that the 1892 is an elusive issue in all grades whose extant survivors are, by and large, not particularly choice.
