Description & Analysis

Despite a generous mintage the 1902-O quarter dollar is scarce in all but the lowest grades. There was absolutely no incentive for or interest in saving examples from circulation until the mid 1930s, when the introduction of inexpensive collecting boards jump-started the coin hobby. Mint State coins are likewise very scarce, with gems being exceedingly rare. Like most New Orleans Mint silver coins of the period, the typical 1902-O is weakly struck in places. Frequent trouble spots are the eagle's left (viewer's right) claw and the feathers of the arrows it grasps. These elements are directly opposite Liberty's forehead, a deep cavity in the obverse die, and the planchet metal didn't displace sufficiently to fill both sides.

No varieties are reported.

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.
