Notes:

"The Denver Mint began production this year, while San Francisco did not make any quarters. Quarter production is fairly evenly divided among the three mints.

In the last edition we speculated that 1906-D "Presentation" pieces might exist. However, so far none have come to our attention [as of 1999]."1

The finest Uncirculated example graded by PCGS is a single MS-67.
