Ron Guth: As with the 1893-S and 1894-S Quarter Dollars, the 1895-S 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.
