Description & Analysis

Both Breen and Briggs show a proof figure of 880 quarter dollars for 1877, while other references show only 510 proofs. The latter figure represents the number of complete silver proof sets sold, but the requirement that complete sets be purchased expired with the administration of Mint Director James Pollock in the 1860s. The higher figure is the more likely total, but this debate will probably go on for years.

The proof quarter dollars of 1877 are not rare in overall numbers, yet both gems and Cameo pieces are very elusive.

Two die marriages are known, the old Type 1 reverse die of 1872 and a new Type 2 reverse being alternately paired with the same obverse.

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.
