Owner Comments:

Only 5,000 pieces were struck by the San Francisco Mint in 1876. This is the 2nd. lowest mintage for any San Francisco struck quarter eagle. All coins were struck from a single pair of dies and the hair and feathers always come weakly struck. Like it's Philadelphia cousin, all business strikes have a raised bar on the neck near the jaw caused by foreign matter adhering to the hub when the die was sunk into it.
