Description & Analysis

Many thousands of 1961(P) quarters survive in Mint State, but the vast majority are riddled with contact marks. Gems above MS 66 are rare and highly sought.

Among the Philadelphia quarters of 1956-64 struck from retired proof dies (the Type B reverse), 1961 is one of the least often seen.
