The discovery of a proof Washington Quarter with a letter "S" on the eagle's chest was a huge find in 1952! It was quickly labeled the Superbird after Superman, who's uniform features an S on his chest. During the 1950s, the popular Superman TV show aired on NBC - some experts believe that a Mint employee (and fan of the show) added an "S' mint mark to the eagle's chest after his favorite hero!
The 1952 Superbird variety is really popular amongst variety collectors and has proven to be quite scarce, with less than a few thousand issues believed to exist. The Superbird variety has only been discovered on the 1952 Proof Quarter.
