David Hall

The mintage of the 1941 Philadelphia was over twice the mintage of any other Washington quarter previously struck. And apparently a lot of uncircualted examples were saved at the time of issue as this is one of the most common Washington quarters of the 1940s in Gem condition. There are many truly suprb, highly lustrous survivors of this date.
