Description & Analysis

Confidence in federal paper currency was rising as the price of silver was falling after 1873, and paper achieved value parity with fractional silver coins in 1875. To retire the despised fractional currency notes, the Mint cranked out many millions of dimes, quarters and halves during 1875-77.

This issue is common across all grades, and enough nice Mint State survivors are known to make 1875(P) a suitable choice for type collectors. Most examples are well struck, too.

Some two dozen die marriages have been recorded for this issue by researcher Gerry Fortin, and these include a few repunched or misplaced dates. The most popular of the latter is F-107/FS-301, which shows the top of a numeral 1 boldly protruding from the denticles below the date. The obverse die also reveals clashing.

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.
