Dave Crouthers Grand Gold Coin
Production of Quarter Dollars at the Carson City Mint jumped up to 140,000 in 1875, a rather significant jump from previous years. Collector demand for this date is intense no matter what the grade, and competition for top condition pieces is intense. In Mint State, this date is very scarce and correspondingly expensive. A very small number of Gems sit atop the PCGS Condition Census, the finest being a single MS65+.
