Description & Analysis

The modest mintage of 22,850 1872-CC quarters is nevertheless a large figure in comparison to the previous two years' production. These were produced with a single die pair in which the obverse shield was marred by a deep scratch that translated into a raised, diagonal line on the coins. A second, cancelled obverse die has survived, but no examples of this issue are extant from that die, if it was used at all. The lone reverse die is the same one used for 1870-CC and 1871-CC.

Rare in all grades, this issue is particularly so in grades XF, AU and MS. Mint State coins are extreme rarities, the finer of just two believed to exist being an absolutely amazing gem with a provenance back to the Eliasberg and Clapp Collections.

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.
