Description & Analysis

The glut of quarter dollars within the Treasury's inventory continued through 1881, and just a token mintage was prepared to accommodate requests from collectors and the general public. This required only a single pair of dies.

1881 quarters a slightly more challenging to locate across all grades than those of 1879-80, and they remain in demand from collectors of this series.
