Ron Guth: Most (perhaps all) examples of this date utilize an Old Reverse ("Hub of 1840-1858"). Please report any New Reverse examples.
David Akers (1975/88): Like most S Mint quarter eagles, the 1875-S is very difficult to obtain above EF. I have seen a number of AU's and three or four strictly uncirculated pieces, but the typically available specimen only grades VF or so. Most of the specimens that I have seen are weakly struck, although not as noticeably so as many of the earlier S Mint quarter eagles. A few, however, are nearly as sharply struck as their Philadelphis Mint counterparts. This is an underrated and undervalued date, particularly in high grade.
