David Akers (1975/88): The 1860-S, and all subsequent S Mint quarter eagles until 1877, still retain the quarter eagle reverse that was used from 1840 to 1858. The 1860-S is a very scarce coin in any condition and is extremely rare better than EF. Only a few uncirculated pieces are known, with reputedly the finest being the specimen that was offered in the New Netherlands 48th Sale in 1956. Most known specimens are very worn.
