Description & Analysis

Reference books show an even figure of 700 proof quarter dollars for 1874, but these numbers typically are approximations. The Mint's bookkeeping when it came to proof sales was not very meticulous, and most sales figures were understated a bit. In the instance of 1874, Walter Breen provided a proof figure of 850 pieces, but this number has been abandoned in more recent works.

Proof 1874 quarters are similar in availability to other dates from the decade, though they are more elusive in the higher grades. Cameo pieces are also in short supply, particularly given the great price pressure put on this issue due its status as a two-year-only subtype.

Two die pairs were used to strike these coins. One included the 1872 reverse die, always easily spotted by its distinctive flaw, while the other introduced a new reverse. Each marriage featured its own obverse die, as well.

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.
