The 1929 quarter eagle is the final date of the series and is considered somewhat underrated in terms of rarity. Philadelphia Mint coins from 1929 are usually found well-struck, and the luster is typically attractive and frosty.

The 1929 is also quite available through Choice Mint State, becoming much scarcer beyond that. MS-63 examples are very common and are often priced just above bullion value, while MS-64 coins command a slightly bigger premium. However, in Gem this is a considerable condition rarity, most resembling the 1909 or the 1915. Experts suggest that fewer than 500 pieces remain in Gem condition, though coins in grades above MS-65 are extremely rare. Perhaps just a dozen or two examples exist in MS-66 or MS-67, though the Superb Gem population is certainly in the single digits.
