Description & Analysis

The 1894 was produced to the extent of just 4,000 business strikes. Although none of the Liberty Quarter Eagles of the 1880-1901 era were produced in sizeable numbers, the 1894 boasts one of the lower mintages. Survivors, therefore, are popular at all levels of preservation.
