Description & Analysis

The 1891 quarter eagle from Philadelphia has the unusual distinction of being rare both as a business strike and as a proof. Only 10,980 business strikes were produced with perhaps a couple of hundred or so known today, while 80 proofs were minted with perhaps 20 pieces believed extant.
