Description & Analysis

Philadelphia's production of quarter dollars remained high in 1957. Quality, however, was not a priority, and most examples reveal very worn dies that may include signs of crude polishing. The BU roll market was going into overdrive around this time, so the sheer number of survivors has led to a large population through MS 67.

Some of the nicest examples were coined from retired or unneeded proof dies, the Type B reverse hub being in evidence here. These coins typically have smoother fields, though they also may have weak details from the vigorous die polishing employed while the dies were still in proof production.
