Description & Analysis

This date was not issued for circulation, and a mere nine examples are traceable today. These are traditionally classified as proofs but, as with the 1894-S dimes, are most likely prooflike strikings from fresh dies. This is a matter of semantics, as all were of similar quality when new.

Like many quarter dollars of the mid 1820s, this issue was produced with a die that had been overdated not once but twice. Its obverse die was used also for the rare 1823/2 quarters. Little evidence of the underlying numerals is visible, as the die was extensively polished prior to minting of the 1827 coins. Its reverse die remained in service to produce the B-1 marriage of 1828.

A single worn specimen is known, most likely having been spent by someone unaware of its significance. The other eight pieces have been preserved as special coins, though mishandling has resulted in fairly low numeric grades for proofs.

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.
