Description & Analysis

With silver coins not circulating in most of the nation, mintages at Philadelphia remained small. The resulting rarity of non-proof 1865(P) quarter dollars has thus increased the demand for the more available proofs. The quality of proof coinage rose throughout this decade, and there are more Cameo examples than for previous years. Even a few Ultra Cameo coins have been certified, a testament to the mint's more skillful die preparation.

Not surprisingly, the 500 proofs for 1865 were coined from a single pair of dies, Briggs 3-B. The obverse die was lightly pitted, as this is revealed as small, raised lumps on the Liberty figure.

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.
