Description & Analysis

After coining no quarter dollars in 1904 the San Francisco Mint stepped up this year and produced nearly two million pieces. Well worn examples are common from being saved during the 1930s-40s by collector filling coin boards and folders. 1905-S quarters become progressively scarcer in grades Fine and higher. While the number of certified Mint State coins is low overall, there are several exceptional gems known.

There are no varieties reported beyond a very minor repunched date, but four reverse dies are evident from slight variations in mintmark location.
