Owner's Comments

Expert Comments

Ron Guth: The 1897-S Quarter Dollar is found with the mintmark in two positions: one with the S above the space between the R of QUARTER and the D of DOLLAR and another with the S above the left edge of the D.  Apparently, the first variety (S between the R and D) is the scarcer of the two.  Click on the "View All Images" link to see examples of both.
