Description & Analysis

The coining of quarter dollars resumed at the New Orleans Mint for the first time since 1860, though the number of pieces struck was fairly small for a circulating issue. Perhaps in celebration of this milestone, exceptionally fine impressions were made of the 1891-O quarter, with at least two surviving. The line between Proof and Specimen can be a fine one, but NGC opted to use the latter term. These coins are fully struck and quite prooflike in most respects.

While mentioning the existence of these coins, Larry Briggs did not provide any particulars about the dies used, though his marriage 2-B, with its small, round mintmark seems to match the coins.

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.
