As the nation descended into Civil War, small change (particularly silver coins) quickly disappeared from circulation. While mintages remained high, hoarding resulted in severe shortages, and tokens, postage currency and fractional paper money quickly replaced "hard metal" coins. Both the 1861-S Dime and Quarter are scarce coins, and the Quarter is unknown in Mint State! The nation's few coin collectors were located on the East Coast, so very few (if any) San Francisco coins were preserved in Uncirculated condition.
