Description & Analysis

The mintage of quarter dollars at the New Orleans Mint rose a bit from 1859's total, but this issue is still slightly scarce in circulated grades. Mint State coins and those just shy of that level are elusive, with gems (MS-65 and higher) being very rare.

In his book The Comprehensive Encyclopedia of United States Liberty Seated Quarters, Larry Briggs identified two die marriages for 1860-O, each consisting of unique obverse and reverse dies. In both instances the obverse die is from the Type 2 hub, while the reverse is from the Type 1 hub. The reverse dies were evidently repolished at some point during production, resulting in die states that display shallow mintmarks. This same phenomenon is noted for 1860-O silver dollars, as well.

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.
