Description & Analysis

The booming economy of the mid-1920s resulted in another large production of quarter dollars from the Philadelphia Mint. It's tempting to speculate that the U. S. Mint was attempting to replace all of the soon-to-be-dateless quarters made 1916-24, but there doesn't appear to have been any official attempt to withdraw dateless Standing Liberty Quarters and Buffalo Nickels. Many thousands of each remained in circulation as late as the 1960s.

Despite the huge numbers coined, the 1926(P) quarter is fairly scarce when found well struck. Mediocre MS survivors abound, and these coins have an overall lack of definition more associated with Denver and San Francisco coins. Of course, some examples do not qualify for the Full Head designation. There seem to be enough MS FH pieces certified to satisfy advanced collectors, and worn examples of this date/mint are very common.
