Description & Analysis

The 1833 quarter dollar is slightly scarcer than most other dates in the 1831-38 series, but it is by no means rare. A modest number of Mint State coins have survived, but gems are very elusive.

As in 1832, a single obverse die was paired with two reverses, and these marriages are of more or less equal availability. They are easily distinguished in either one of two ways. On B-1 the shield gules (red vertical stripes represented by raised lines) each have three parallel lines, while B-2 has just two lines to each of the gules. Also, B-2 has portions of the reverse legend repunched. Specifically, the F in OF and first A in AMERICA are duplicated to the left of the correctly placed letters. The normal reverse of B-1 was also utilized for one 1832 marriage and two of 1831. This reinforces how the Philadelphia Mint was thrifty with dies and didn't necessarily use them solely in the year for which they were dated.

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.
