Why is the 1983 quarter a key date? And is it both mints that are key or just one?

Not sure if it is actually considered a key date or not.

But, I do know that they come at a premium because they were not issued in mint sets that year.

So, everyone had to try to pull a high grade example from circulation, which wasn't easy. They are still tough to find in a decent grade.

From what I have learned, the 82 and 83 quarters in uncirculated condition are key dates and carry a premium in price. The mint only made special mint sets sold at the respective mints only for those years. There seems to be plenty of circulated ones, but a lot less of the uncirculated ones as compared to other years. I have just recently finished two sets of Washington quarters and the hardest to find and the most expensive of the clad ones are the 82 and 83 in uncirculated condition.
