Description & Analysis

The 1926-S quarter dollar was widely hoarded by collectors and speculators from the mid-1930s onward, and worn examples are quite common. This issue becomes scarce only above Very Fine, and XF or AU coins are all the more elusive due to the poor quality of striking associated with this entry. Coins having only a little wear were lacking XF or better details, as made.

Mint State survivors are very scarce, and gems are quite highly prized. Well struck examples are very rare, with those certified as FH being extremely so.

1926-S is one of several SLQs found with the "Tear Drop" die break to the right of Liberty's left thigh. Though not a true variety, it is nonetheless popular with specialists.

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.
