Description & Analysis

With a high mintage, this issue is fairly common across all grades short of MS 65. Even at that level there appear to be more than the usual number of entries for this coin type. Nice circulated survivors resulted from the fact that collectors began seeking these coins from pocket change just 17 years later with the arrival of coin boards for what was then erroneously called the "Morgan" Quarter.

Perhaps embarrassed by the very large number of date punching errors in 1908, the Philadelphia Mint's engraving department began this year applying the date to a master die. All working hubs and working dies were then taken from that master, assuring that the appearance of the date remained constant. Though the style and exact position of the date might vary from one year to the next, no longer would there be any oddities within a particular year's coinage. Mintmarks, however, remained hand punched for another 80 years.

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.
