Description & Analysis

Production of quarter dollars at the San Francisco Mint tripled over that of 1873. This mintage was accomplished with three obverse dies that were successively paired with a single reverse. This reverse bore the very small, squat S used also for Briggs' 1873-S, Reverse B.

This issue is moderately scarce across all circulated grades, becoming a bit more challenging at the XF and AU level. Mint State examples likely would have been extremely rare were it not for a hoard of 80-100 coins that surfaced in the middle of the last century. Some of these have been mishandled or badly cleaned over the years, but there is still a disproportionate number of gems as compared to other S-Mint quarters before 1876.

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.
