Description & Analysis

The 600 proofs of this issue represent a typical mintage of the period. Since it was unlikely that the Philadelphia Mint would sell such exact figures, it may be that a few of these coins remained at the end of the year and were simply put into circulation.

It was about this time that the Mint's proof coins began to decline a bit in quality. The dies for this year and the next several were more carelessly polished, resulting in a lesser incidence of cameo contrast and a higher incidence of visible lines in the fields. While this date is no more rare then most proof quarters of the 1860s, there are fewer examples found with the desirable contrast.

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.
