Description & Analysis

Two years of economic recession ended during 1923, and by then the huge mintages of 1917-20 quarter dollars had finally been fully distributed. Thus did the Philadelphia begin coining large numbers of quarters once again. This high mintage has left 1923(P) as one of the more common pieces of the raised date series. Worn examples are plentiful, though many have only the final numeral of the date visible. As the only coin of this type to have a date ending in 3, these coins remain useful as hole fillers.

Mint State survivors are plentiful, though precious few are struck well enough to warrant Full Head certification. Author Jay Cline pegged the percentage of FH coins at one in ten, and this seems to be in line with the certified population.
