Description & Analysis

Production nearly tripled over San Francisco's output in 1864, yet this is still a scarce coin across all grades. Most are heavily worn, though there appear to be more than the usual percentage of mid-grade examples as compared to other S-Mint quarters of the 1860s. Mint State coins are quite rare, and the spike in MS-64 certified pieces within NGC's Census likely represents a single coin being submitted two or more times.

Just a single pair of dies has been identified for this low-mintage issue, and it features the final appearance of the Large S mintmark used for all No Motto quarters.
