Description & Analysis

In the second edition of The Complete Guide to Barber Quarters, David Lawrence wrote, 'Three similar mint mark positions identified in the First Edition. Since then I have also seen a coin with a very weak mint mark, though the surrounding area was decently struck. This leads me to believe it was weakly punched in the die.' David Akers made a similar comment about this coin in the Pittman catalog, 'Very weak, barely visible mintmark, the result of being weakly punched into the die since the coin is otherwise sharply struck.' Alternatively, a filled die, with grease or another substance clogging the O mintmark in the die would yield similar weakness.
