Description & Analysis

A short but nasty economic recession began toward the end of 1948 and lasted until mid-1950. This resulted is several coin issues of reduced mintage, including both emissions of quarter dollars for 1949. The popular practice of saving BU rolls was well established by this time, however, so the 1949(P) quarter will never be rare in Mint State. Examples are common through MS 66, but the somewhat irregular quality of Philadelphia Mint coins has limited the number qualifying for MS 67.

This issue is devoid of desirable varieties, and only a few minor DDOs are known.
