Description & Analysis

1924 proved to be the final year of raised-date quarters, and it was evident that the Mint was quite aware of the problem with dateless coins in circulation. As a stop-gap measure, the numerals of the date for 1924's obverse master die were thinner than in past years in an attempt to make them more resistant to the blurring effects of circulation. Of course, the real solution to the problem was not arrived until the following year, when the date was finally recessed to protect it from wear.

The 1924(P) quarter dollar is among the most often seen Type 2 quarters across most grades. With a mintage similar to that of 1923(P), the number of circulated survivors for each are roughly similar. Mint State pieces are plentiful, and Full Head coins are more common than for 1923(P). The overall quality of strike is fairly good for this entry. Jay Cline observed that many examples seem to have a "very porous field," and this is likely just the effects of die erosion seen on all dates/mints of Type 2 Standing Liberty Quarters.
