Description & Analysis

The mintage of proof 1890 quarter dollars was the lowest for this series since 1877. It's unfortunate, as the quality of this year's proofs is a bit higher than for the several preceding issues. Though some of the letters in UNITED STATES OF AMERICA reveal some crumbling of the die, this is an otherwise appealing entry, with more than the usual number of Cameo and Ultra Cameo examples certified.

Many proofs of the 1880s are worth less than their MS counterparts, but the sharp rise in currency mintage for 1890 has given this year's proofs a decided premium in most grades.
