Description & Analysis

Most San Francisco Mint quarter dollars of the 1860s are rare, and this issue is no exception. Mint State pieces are few and far between, and nice circulated examples are likewise in great demand. Most 1862-S quarter are heavily worn and may reveal damage or improper cleaning.

Two obverse dies, both Type 2, were alternately paired with a single reverse die, this being the same one used for a portion of the 1861-S production. San Francisco coined so few quarters before 1876 that a single delivery of reverse dies could be used for many years. Thus, the distinctive Large S mintmark survived through 1865 on quarters, while the high mintage double eagle did not display it after 1857.

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.
