Description & Analysis

The mintage of quarter dollars rose steadily from the mid 1950s onward and accelerated rapidly after 1961. This is not really evident for the 1962(P) issue, but by year's end the Philadelphia Mint was fully aware of a growing nationwide coin shortage.

Gems are plentiful through MS 66, though the number of MS 67 coins is limited.

A fairly appealing DDO variety is known for the 1962(P) quarter.
