Notes:
"All four mints produced quarters for the first time [in 1907]. Survivorship of the P-mint is substantial and almost 100 more than in any of the previous years except 1892. As we enter the last eight years of the series, we see that strikes will be fairly poor for the P, D&O (as long as New Orleans continues to operate) Mints and decent for the S-mint issues." - "The Complete Guide To Certified Barber Coinage" by David & John Feigenbaum
