Description & Analysis

The hoarding of first gold, then silver coins during the Civil War affected the survival rate of this issue in a way quite favorable to collectors. With coins circulating only in the Far West, the Philadelphia Mint quarters of this and the next several dates are disproportionately available in unworn condition. They were not available, except at a premium as measured in paper money, so more examples remained unused and forgotten until decades later. The 1862(P) quarter, while slightly scarce in overall numbers, is thus available to both date and type collectors.

From this year onward, all Philadelphia Mint quarters were coined from dies of the new hubs first introduced during 1859, though the reverse was modified in 1866 to bear the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. Several die pairs are known for 1862(P), but there are no varieties of general interest.

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.
