Description & Analysis

The mass redemption of the hated fractional currency notes really got underway in 1876, and Philadelphia recorded its highest mintage of the entire Seated Liberty Quarter Dollar series. This issue is common across all grades, including Mint State. Some truly outstanding gems have been certified, and these grace many an advanced type set.

With such a huge mintage (101 obverse dies and 108 reverses were prepared) the 1876(P) quarter has revealed several varieties. Some were published in Briggs' superb encyclopedia on this series, while others were discovered subsequently and included within The Cherrypickers' Guide to Rare Die Varieties. The best of these are attributed by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.

Most 1876(P) quarters were coined with reverse dies of the Type 2 hub, and examples displaying the Type 1 reverse are very scarce.

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.
