Ron Guth:

The 1875-S Quarter Dollar is a relatively common date but commands a small premium over the truly high-mintage dates of the era. Mint State versions are neither common nor rare -- they are simply scarce. The highest population appears at the MS64 level, though the number may be inflated due to resubmissions. This date usually shows strong denticles but some of the stars may be softly struck. The luster is usually soft and frosty.
