Description & Analysis

There was no reported coinage of quarter dollars in 1824, yet such coins exist. It is the opinion of most series specialists that the December 31, 1823 warrant for 16,000 quarters consisted entirely of 1824/2 pieces. This number is quite plausible, given the number of examples known today, which is in the low hundreds. Nearly all of these are heavily worn, with anything at or close to Mint State being quite rare.

Only a single die marriage is known, the engraver drawing on 1822's roster of unused obverse dies to create this overdate. The reverse die was also a leftover from 1823's small production. It proved durable enough to be used again for coins dated 1825 and 1828.

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.
