Description & Analysis

This is another low mintage issue that would be rare today, were it not for the practice of saving BU rolls that was popular from the 1930s through the '60s. 1938-S quarters were fairly well made, and gems are plentiful. Collectors are encouraged to seek only examples struck from fresh dies having smooth or finely-grained luster.
