Description & Analysis

A single die pair produced this paltry mintage, and the reverse die was the same one used for 1870-CC. In his book on the Carson City Mint, Rusty Goe reported that the first delivery of 1871-CC quarters was made in February and consisted of 3,490 coins.

It was the policy of Nevada's mint to not release the fractional silver coins into circulation for its first few years, but obviously this happened at some point, as most survivors are heavily worn. Goe estimated that 35-45 1871-CC quarters are known today, with three or four in Mint State. Larry Briggs put the number at just three.

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.
