Description & Analysis

This is another high-mintage issue within the Standing Liberty series that is all but impossible to find well struck. Both sides typically are weak in all the deepest cavities of the dies. These elements include the date, the left side of the shield, the eagle's breast, Liberty's knee and upper leg and, of course, Liberty's head. Typical of the certified population for this coin series, examples certified as FH are over-represented within the census data, as such coins are more likely to be submitted for grading one or more times.

1918-D quarters are scarce in the higher circulated grades, and competition for nice, uncleaned specimens is keen among collectors. Well worn pieces are frequently identifiable solely by a partial numeral 8, as the fourth digit of the date typically was the last to wear away on 1916-24 coins (no other dates in that range ended with an 8).

Denver Mint coins of all denominations dated from 1916 through the late 1920s are frequently seen with die cracks, the worst years seemingly being 1917-21. The 1918-D quarter is no exception, and Cline illustrated two dramatic examples in his book.

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.
