Jaime Hernandez:

This is one of the lowest mintage coins in the Seated Liberty Quarter series. Only 10,890 were struck while most of them no longer survive due to circulation, being lost or melted. Possibly less than 100 gradable examples exist. Most examples that exist survive in circulated grades.
