Description & Analysis

Although dies were on hand as early as 1853, the dearth of parting acids prevented the production of silver coinage at the San Francisco Mint until 1855. In the latter year, 396,400 quarters and 129,950 half dollars flowed into California's economic channels. While the half dollar is rightly recognized as a rare issue in all grades, the '55-S Arrows Seated quarter is also a legitimately scarce coin that is difficult to find problem-free in any grade.
