David Hall: Though the 1946-S is the second lowest mintage 1940 to 1964 Washington quarter, it is actually the most common in Gem condition. What happened was the low mintage attracted those who put away uncirculated rolls in the 1940s and 1950s and a very large number of original rolls were saved. Today, you can find gorgeous specimens of this date with out much effort.
