David Hall:

The 1938-S is one of the lowest mintages in the Washington quarter series and it has long been considered a desireable semi-key date. All of the S-Mint Washingtons of the 1930s are considered rarities of the series, but the 1938-S is actually the easiest to locate in Gem uncirculated condition. Strike doesn't seem to be a problem and the collector can find frosty white Gems or original toned specimens to his liking.
