Description & Analysis

The San Francisco Mint exceeded 1876's record production of quarter dollars this year by 400,000 pieces, and this issue is common across all grades through MS 64. Gems grading MS 65 or higher are also available and command strong prices.

All 1877-S quarters feature the Type 2 reverse, but there are three styles of mintmark found for this issue. Most common is the Medium S which debuted in 1875, but there are single dies known having older style mintmarks. The Small S of 1866-75 is seen for the last time, and the Medium, Small S first seen in 1876 also exists for 1877-S. Only series specialists seem to have warmed to these varieties. The only premium variety for this year is one of the Medium S dies on which the mintmark was first punched 90 degrees counterclockwise from normal and then corrected.

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.
