Description & Analysis

With the nation fully engaged in World War I, the economy was booming, and the need for fresh coin was very heavy in 1918. The Philadelphia Mint quarter dollar of this date thus enjoyed the second highest mintage of the entire Standing Liberty series. Coins that have good overall strikes are fairly available, though many have weak dates, and precious few of these feature the coveted Full Head. Cline put the proportion at just 5% of the total, though expressing it as the percentage struck with FH, something we cannot know for certain. His figure, however, is accurate for the percentage of FH coins among MS examples surviving.

The attrition rate for 1918(P) quarters that entered circulation was extremely heavy, and it's likely that many of the now-dateless Philadelphia Mint SLQs in the marketplace once bore the date 1918.

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.
