Description & Analysis

The distinguishing arrowheads added in 1873 continued through 1874. An urgency to replace the earlier, pre-1873 coinage simply didn't exist, however, as silver coins had still not achieved value parity with federal paper currency. This condemned them to remain hidden within most of the nation. Thus, the mintage of 1874(P) quarter dollars was little more than a third that of 1873.

Four obverse dies were paired with three reverses in four combinations to produce this coinage. Mint State examples are noticeably less available than for 1873(P), but worn specimens are fairly plentiful. No varieties of interest have been found.

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.
