Description & Analysis

The rush to retire the outstanding fractional currency notes abated a bit during 1877, but not enough to keep the Philadelphia Mint from producing another bumper crop of quarter dollars. This is very common issue across all grades, though perhaps not quite as common as 1876(P). Mint State coins, even gems (MS 65 and higher), are fairly plentiful. Large mintages usually result in some compromising in quality control, and buyers are advised to avoid coins that are weakly struck in places or show obvious die erosion.

All 1877(P) quarters coined for circulation have the Type 2 reverse, which is standard for this and all subsequent dates through the end of the series. Only minor varieties are known for this issue, though Briggs' Obverse 2 displays a prominent internal cud break within the chief of Liberty's shield. This is actually a die state, rather than a variety, and it's not known whether this same obverse is identifiable prior to its failure.

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.
