Description & Analysis

Production of quarter dollars at the San Francisco Mint nearly doubled from 1893, and this issue is scarce only in grades Very Fine and higher. Mint State survivors are more plentiful than one would expect, yet gems remain persistently rare.

Reverse dies used this year feature either the far right position or the one centered equidistantly between letters R D of the value statement. David Lawrence identified four far right dies and just a single centered one. The far right mintmark was a holdover from early 1893, yet survivors outnumber the centered dies by about two to one for this date. These are the only "varieties" known for 1894-S.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
