Description & Analysis

Jeff Garrett: The production of the Quarter Eagle continued in 1913 at a rather healthy pace and finding an example of the issue is a simple matter in most grades. The surface and luster for the issue is somewhat dull, but most are seen well struck. The date becomes rare at the Gem level, with less than 100 coins certified (11/12). The date is extremely rare in MS 66 condition, and I have only seen one or two that would qualify as that grade. It is interesting that the series that can be found in prodigious quantities, but the issue is nearly unknown in MS 67 condition.
