Description & Analysis

The coining of quarter dollars resumed at the New Orleans Mint for the first time since 1860, though the number of pieces struck was fairly small for a circulating issue. Perhaps in celebration of this milestone, exceptionally fine impressions were made of the 1891-O quarter, with at least two surviving. The line between Proof and Specimen can be a fine one, but NGC opted to use the latter term. These coins are fully struck and quite prooflike in most respects.

While mentioning the existence of these coins, Larry Briggs did not provide any particulars about the dies used, though his marriage 2-B, with its small, round mintmark seems to match the coins.
