Description & Analysis

This very generous mintage has left the 1908-O quarter dollar quite common across all grades shy of MS 65. These coins tend to be a bit softly struck, and collectors are advised to seek a sharp impression from fresh dies, regardless of the numeric grade assigned. Gems are available in sufficient numbers to meet the demand from advanced collectors.

There are several misplaced date varieties, with the tops of one or more numerals appearing within the denticles below the actual date placement. 1908 would be the final year for date-punching varieties, and the Philadelphia Mint's engraving department went out with a bang.

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.
