Description & Analysis

The 1900-S issue comprised the majority of quarter dollars shipped to The Philippines during the early years of the Philippine Insurrection against American forces following the Spanish-American War. These circulated for just a few years before being replaced in 1903 with a unique coinage for the islands. The retired coins were tucked away by Filipinos as a store of value and were later repatriated during the 1950s-60s. As a consequence, the 1900-S quarter is very common in XF, though nearly all of these survivors have been cleaned with varying degrees of harshness. Mint State examples are very scarce, with gems being nearly unknown.

The majority of 1900-S quarters have the 1/2 hub pairing, but this issue is also known paired 2/3. As with the hub varieties from Philadelphia and New Orleans, collectors have shown little interest in collecting both combinations. There are no other varieties beyond a very minor repunched mintmark.

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.
