Description & Analysis

The booming economy of the mid-1920s resulted in another large production of quarter dollars from the Philadelphia Mint. It's tempting to speculate that the U. S. Mint was attempting to replace all of the soon-to-be-dateless quarters made 1916-24, but there doesn't appear to have been any official attempt to withdraw dateless Standing Liberty Quarters and Buffalo Nickels. Many thousands of each remained in circulation as late as the 1960s.

Despite the huge numbers coined, the 1926(P) quarter is fairly scarce when found well struck. Mediocre MS survivors abound, and these coins have an overall lack of definition more associated with Denver and San Francisco coins. Of course, some examples do not qualify for the Full Head designation. There seem to be enough MS FH pieces certified to satisfy advanced collectors, and worn examples of this date/mint are very common.

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.
