Expert Comments

David Hall: The 1958 is the fourth lowest mintage 1941-1964 Washington quarter, yet it one of the most common in Gem condition. The low mintage caused a large number of original rolls to be saved by collectors and speculators in the year of issue. Today, all those saved rolls are the source of the many frosty white Gems that survive. There are also a number of beautifully toned Gems from original Government mint sets.

 

Mitch Spivack: As usual, I agree with all that David said, but I would like to supplement that with a few other interesting points. First, although this date is among the easiest in the series to locate in MS66 and even MS67 grade, when it comes to upper end MS67 quality, the coin becomes fairly scarce as is the case with nearly every silver quarter in this series. Interestingly, at the time of this writing (and PCGS has been open for business for more than (25) years now), not a single MS68 has been graded of this date. Also, of note ... virtually every coin that has achieved the MS67 grade level is a mint set toned or album toned specimen. Blazing superb gems from original rolls (without toning that can often hide imperfections) generally max out at MS66 grade. In my near (25) years of hunting for this date in superb gem brilliant PCGS-MS67 grade, I have located just a single example. Finally, be on the lookout for the "Type B reverse" of this date as finding one already in a MS66 or higher graded PCGS holder would be a great "cherrypick". If you "cherry" an PCGS-MS67 with a Type B reverse of this date, you just might be able to plan your next trip to Disneyland with the profits!
