Description & Analysis

Like the gold dollar, 45 proof quarter eagles were struck in 1876. And also like the gold dollar, very few business strikes were produced--only 4,176 pieces in fact. Both Breen and Taglione suggest that perhaps as many as 24 proofs survive today in all grades. In order to distinguish proofs from singly struck business strikes, one must examine the profile of Liberty. On business strikes, there is a raised bar (from foreign matter adhering to the hub when the obverse die was sunk from it) at the neck next to the jaw on business strikes, but proofs lack this feature.

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.
