Located in Tennessee and North Carolina, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was first authorized in 1926, but owing to many factors including the Great Depression, the park was not dedicated until 1940. With the help of private donations as well as federal funds, a large portion of land was bought for the park leading to the protected area that is enjoyed by many today. So many, in fact, that it is touted as the most visited national park in the United States.
Each roll in the set will be wrapped in special Mint wrapping. On the outside of the wrapper, the roll’s contents will be specified (Great Smoky Mountains Quarters) along with the face value of the roll ($10). An initial will indicate which minting facility is responsible for the strikes contained within (P for Philadelphia or D for Denver).
