Description & Analysis

In this year on the eve of the Civil War, although the Seated quarter was produced at three mints, not one of them saw a mintage exceeding 1 million pieces. The Philadelphia Mint produced only 804,400 coins, with New Orleans contributing 388,000 and San Francisco a meager 56,000. Today the average certified survivor is only Choice AU or thereabouts, and Gem Uncirculated pieces are quite rare.
