Description & Analysis

The first casualty of the postwar recession was America's agriculture, the demand and prices for food commodities dropping while the rest of the economy was still active. This greatly affected the demand for additional coins in the region serviced by the Denver Mint, with a resulting drop in quarter dollar production from the previous year. 1919-D quarters are thus scarce across all grades, with gems being exceedingly rare.

Contributing to this rarity is the fact that most 1919-D quarters were poorly struck, with weak central details and dates. Liberty's shield is almost invariably shallow and indistinct, and Full Head examples are quite seldom found. Jay Cline placed the population of Full Head coins at just one percent of the total Mint State population. In addition to weak striking, Denver Mint coins of the late 1910s through the mid 1920s were especially susceptible to cracking of the dies. It's quite possible that these dies were not being properly hardened after shipment, and D-Mint quarters are often laced with assorted cracks visible as raised lines on the coins' surfaces.

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.
