Description & Analysis

Many of the 1.5 million quarter dollars coined at the San Francisco Mint in 1930 remained idle in vaults for the next several years, as the Great Depression wiped out any demand for additional coins. When they were finally released in quantity during 1934-35, collectors were prompted by this coin type's discontinuance to preserved original rolls that survived as late as the 1960s. Mint State survivors are thus common, though most are weakly struck from well worn dies. While rare, Full Head pieces are available, though they may not compare favorably with the sharpness of FH pieces of other dates.
