Description & Analysis

The number of coins struck for circulation rose in spectacular fashion this year, as the decade-long redundancy of quarter dollars in the Treasury was finally eradicated. Conversely, proof sales plunged to just 600 pieces. With MS coins being quite common, the 1891 proof edition thus brings more in all but the highest grades.

A single pair of dies was used for this date, the reverse being a holdover from 1890. These dies are not especially distinctive, though the slightly incomplete stars seen on proof 1891 quarters may the result of an incomplete hubbing operation.
