Description & Analysis

San Francisco's output of quarter dollars rose dramatically in 1875, but it would pale in comparison to that of the following year. Five die marriages have been identified from the use of four each obverse and reverse dies (Obverse 2 was used with both Reverses B and C). Reverse A displays the Small, Squat S used previously in 1873-74, while Reverse B has the Small S of earlier dates 1866-73. Reverses C and D introduced a new, Medium S that would become very familiar over the next few years. These new dies were taken from the Type 2 hub with separation between letters TAT of STATES.

Larry Briggs observed that this issue tends to be poorly struck. It is somewhat scarce in all circulated grades, with XF and higher grades through Mint State being moderately rare. Several gems have been certified, and these satisfy the demand from advanced collectors of this series.

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.
