Description & Analysis

A single proof is known of this branch mint issue, and it remains in private hands. It appears that a complete proof set was coined at the San Francisco Mint for 1855, the first year of its operation in which both gold and silver coins were produced. Lacking, of course, were the half dime, dime and silver dollar.

Larry Briggs was mum on the subject of 1855-S proof quarters, but the sole specimen known appears to match his die marriage 1-A, which was also used for currency strikings.
