The front features Washington looking left and IN GOD WE TRUST is written under the chin. The word FREEDOM can be seen arched above his head.

The reverse side of the 1941 Washington Quarter is sometimes referred to as Eagle Reverse. It depicts a bald eagle with outstretched wings holding 13 arrows to symbolize the original 13 states of the Union.

Denver bounced back from its insanely low quarterly production in 1940 and posted a significantly higher total that year. Gems are plentiful up to MS 66; For the seasoned collector, there are many MS 67 coins. Denver routinely produced the best minted coins from the 1930s to 1940s, and the 1941 D is no exception.

Severe erosion lines and over-polishing of stumps are less likely to be seen. Ironically, contact marks are more noticeable on well-minted coins than soft coins; therefore, this will be taken into account in qualifying. Several double cubes for either side of the 1941 D Quarter are on record, but their popularity varies.

This coin is harder to find in Gem than some of the D Mints that come after it, especially in Great Gem condition.

It seemed obvious that the United States would enter World War II, so the country increased defense production both for the domestic market and for export. This increased economic activity benefited the West Coast, and the San Francisco Mint produced nearly twice as many coins in 1941 as it did in 1940. At the time, the BU Mint consistently preserved all current issues.

Due to increased speculative interest in S Mint coins, the 1941 S quarter is widely extended in notes up to MS 66. Quality control difficulties limited instances with higher levels.

Many 1941 S-Quarters were made with worn dies with little detail and considerable gloss. These matrices can become semi-solid if re-polished to prolong their service life, although often with lines to the detriment of abrasives.

The only known minor double matrices for this problem are the three different mintmark matrices that were used. Most 1941 S Quarters feature the small "S" mark typical of that mint from 1917 to 1941.

A small proportion of the coins feature one of the two main "S" marks used that year, the S trumpet or the S serif, and receive high premiums when discovered in mint condition or barely circulated.

The defense industry won luxury contracts that greatly increased production as the United States prepared for the possibility of war. The end of the Great Depression in 1941 coincided with increased economic activity and employment, which greatly increased coinage.

Philadelphia doubled its production by more than a quarter to unprecedented levels for this appellation.

This problem has been largely and effectively resolved; Examples abound in the State of the Mint. There are many gems up to MS 67. However, these grades are not necessarily due to overly polished or worn dies.

Still, collectors are advised to only look for well-minted pieces that have been produced on new dies. Due to the many pairs of dies required for this mass production, numerous variants were made.

The 1941 P Washington Quarter had a circulation more than double that of any other Washington Quarter ever produced. As this is one of the most widely available 1940s Washington boroughs in gem form, it appears that many uncirculated specimens were in storage at the time of issue. There are many incredible, incredibly bright survivors from that era.

Originally, the proofs were intended for archival and quality control purposes, but when the mint began selling them to collectors, they soon became an additional source of income. The mint makes these coins using polished blocks or special blocks that have already been polished and chemically treated dies to ensure the field is polished and the device is matte.

As a result of these additional processes, the first 50 to 100 coins are extremely bright and are called Deep Cameo (DCAM) or Ultra Cameo, while the last 100 coins are Cameo.

However, most remain in pristine condition as collectors have kept these coins from the beginning. Due to the number of premium coins, test prices are kept low. At PR 65, they're only worth $161.

Occasionally, a triple die or even a quadruple die may come off the die by hitting the die in three or even four slightly different places.

How does the ranking system work?

Numismatists use the Sheldon scale to give coins a numerical value. The Sheldon scale ranges from poor (P-1) to like new (P-1) (MS-70). Coins were originally graded with words to reflect their condition (good, fair, excellent, etc.). Unfortunately, collectors and coin dealers had different ideas about what each of these terms represented.

Professional numismatists got together in the 1970s and established the CoinGrading standards. These numismatists now assign grades at key points on the 70-point scale using the most commonly used numerical points along with the original adjectival grade. The following are the most common types of currencies:

      • (P-1) arm– Indistinguishable and probably damaged; if used, it must have a date and mint mark; otherwise pretty battered.
      • (FR-2) Fair– Almost smooth, but without the damage that a badly quoted coin usually has. The coin must have enough detail to be identifiable.
      • (G-4) Normal– Inscriptions have been merged with the borders in some areas and most important elements have been deleted.
      • (VG-8) Very good-A little worn, but all the main design elements are visible, albeit slightly. Little or no central detail remains.
      • (F-12) Good –The item is heavily worn, but the wear is even and the overall design details stand out clearly. The tires are almost completely isolated from the field.
      • (SS-20) Very cool –Moderately eroded with some finer features still visible. LIBERTY motto or all letters are legible. Both sides of the coin have entire edges separated from the field.
      • (EF-40) Excellent –With little use; All gadgets are visible and the most important ones are in bold. The finer details are bold and clear, however slight signs of wear and tear can be seen.
      • (AU-50) Circle of Sin –Slight signs of wear on coin design highlights; may have contact marks; The optics must be appropriate.
      • (AU-58) option out of circulation –Slight signs of wear, no strong signs of contact, almost full shine and great look.
      • (MS-60) Relief condition Baseline -not circulated; There are no signs of wear on the coin's highest points, but an ugly coin with reduced luster, visible contact points, fine cracks and other blemishes.
      • (MS-63) Perfect condition Acceptable -No circulation, but with scratches and contact marks, little loss of shine, otherwise attractive appearance. The hit is light to medium.
      • (MS-65) Choice of currency state:Uncirculated with a great mint shine, very few contact defects and exceptional visual appeal. The strike is extraordinarily violent.
      • (MS-68) Newly minted premium quality:Uncirculated with excellent gloss, no obvious signs of contact with the naked eye and exceptional visual appeal. The attack is fast and attractive.
      • (MS-69) almost in perfect condition -Uncirculated with perfect gloss, clear and attractive puncture and extremely good eye optics. Nearly perfect coin with minor imperfections on the drawing board, embossing and contact marks (only visible at 8x magnification).
      • (MS-70) Perfect in mint condition –At 8x magnification, small specks are not visible; The strike is crisp and the coin is perfectly centered in a nice pudding. Rarely seen on a coin, this coin is bright and full, with original luster and exceptional visual appeal.
