Description & Analysis

The quarter dollar mintage of 1796-dated pieces seems to have been a token gesture to establish this denomination and to provide keepsakes for a curious public. In reality, there were enough two-reales coins circulating in America, mostly from the Spanish mints in Mexico and Peru, that USA quarter dollars were little needed.

A total of just 6,738 1804 quarters was delivered by the coiner June 12. These were comprised of two die marriages, variety B-2 now being noticeably more scarce than B-1.

Mint State 1804 are very rare, and most survivors are quite heavily worn. Despite being more rare than the 1796 issue, prices for 1804 quarters are much lower, as type collectors have the far more common pieces dated 1805-07 from which to choose, and there are few collectors of this series by date and variety.

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.
