Description & Analysis

Quarter dollar coinage was suspended for all of 1824 and most of 1825. Four warrants totaling 168,000 coins were all posted in December, 1825, and this generous figure has provided collectors a large pool of 1825-dated quarters. All are overdates, these resulting from 1822 obverse dies that were first overpunched with first a numeral 4. When demand for additional quarters failed to materialize that year, the dies were repunched a second time with a 5 atop the 4 and 2. The degree to which these underlying numerals are visible has led to some confusion over the years. Current specialists have settled upon the term 1825/2 for the scarce Obverse 1 (B-1) and 1825/4 for the more common B-2 and B-3 marriages, which employed Obverse 2.

There is a relatively large population of Mint State survivors within the NGC Census, though these are overwhelmingly of the B-2 marriage. There are rare examples of the B-2 and B-3 marriages which have had the letters "E" or "L" punched over Liberty's head. No documentation has been found for why this was done, but researchers lean toward the theory that these coins were presented as prizes for achievement in the study of English and Latin, respectively. The fact that all such specimens are in or near Mint State tends to reinforce the idea that they were prized keepsakes.

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.
