Description & Analysis

The 1820 quarter dollars are more often seen in Mint State than those of the previous year, and a few gems have been certified by NGC. These are nevertheless rare as a portion of the surviving population, and most 1820 quarters are well worn.

The mintage for this year was delivered under three warrants dating from May 19 to December 30. This date is a popular one with variety collectors, as no fewer than three different sizes were employed for the zero of the date: Large (B-1, -2), Medium (B-3) and Small (B-4, -5). B-1 and B-5 are the scarcest of the five, but neither is so rare as to exceed the number of variety collectors for this series. These variations resulted from the gradual failure of existing numeral, letter and star punches, and the Mint purchase a new set of punches early in this year from Henry Starr (the name being just a coincidence).

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.
