Description & Analysis

The obverse die used for proofs of this issue features a misplaced date in which the tops of numerals 83 are duplicated within the denticles below 88 of the normally positioned date. As their is no second obverse, no premium is attached to this oddity.

This was the final year of 1,000+ proof mintages until introduction of the new Barber Liberty Head in 1892. The coining of trade dollars ended after 1883, and that action curtailed most of the speculative fever driving sales. This is another common date within the series of proof Seated Liberty Quarters, though Ultra Cameo examples are rare.

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.
