Description & Analysis

The first casualty of the postwar recession was America's agriculture, the demand and prices for food commodities dropping while the rest of the economy was still active. This greatly affected the demand for additional coins in the region serviced by the Denver Mint, with a resulting drop in quarter dollar production from the previous year. 1919-D quarters are thus scarce across all grades, with gems being exceedingly rare.

Contributing to this rarity is the fact that most 1919-D quarters were poorly struck, with weak central details and dates. Liberty's shield is almost invariably shallow and indistinct, and Full Head examples are quite seldom found. Jay Cline placed the population of Full Head coins at just one percent of the total Mint State population. In addition to weak striking, Denver Mint coins of the late 1910s through the mid 1920s were especially susceptible to cracking of the dies. It's quite possible that these dies were not being properly hardened after shipment, and D-Mint quarters are often laced with assorted cracks visible as raised lines on the coins' surfaces.
