Description & Analysis

The Denver Mint had not coined quarter dollars since 1920, as the numbers produced during the war and its immediate aftermath had been sufficient to meet the needs of that mint's service area. While Mint State survivors are rather plentiful relative to this issue's mintage, nearly all of these coins are poorly struck. Weakness in the shield, eagle's breast and, most notably, the upper part of the date is typical. Like most Denver Mint coins of the period, die cracks are common and extensive. The date area was a proven stress point, and cracking along the top of the date contributed to the overall weakness in this area. Full Head examples are very rare, Jay Cline estimating that fewer than 10% of MS coins qualify for this designation.

Worn examples are quite scarce, as the defective date seen on so many Mint State coins undoubtedly led to premature loss of this feature in circulation. Denver Mint quarters were less subject to the hoarding associated with San Francisco coins during the 1930s-50s, so this issue is much scarcer than the 1924-S quarter in grades below AU.

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.
