Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint upped its coinage of quarter dollars to more than double that produced in 1896. The 1897(P) quarter is thus a plentiful issue in lower grades and only slightly scarce in the higher circulated grades. Mint State survivors are available through MS 64, and gems are also more available than for previous issues, aside from the very common 1892(P).

Varieties are limited to two minor repunched dates that are of little interest beyond series specialists.
