Description & Analysis

After a lapse in quarter dollar coinage during 1874, the Carson City Mint struck 140,000 pieces for 1875, a large production in comparison to earlier years. This may have been prompted by passage of the Specie Resumption Act, though the fractional notes these coins were intended to replace were not circulating in the West. It's likely that Carson's contribution was mostly shipped east for that purpose.

Two die pairs have been identified, and both feature the Type 2 reverse on which letters TAT of STATES are clearly separated.

Most 1875-CC quarters are well struck overall, but they may display isolated areas of weakness such as the top of Liberty's head. Examples are scarce across all grades, with Mint State survivors numbering perhaps three dozen.

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.
