Description & Analysis

The mintage of this issue suggests a coin that should be scarce in Mint State, but average quality MS pieces are quite plentiful. The 1928-D quarter was among a very few Standing Liberty issues that were readily available from dealers in the late 1930s, when this series was one of the hottest areas of collecting. The distribution of Denver Mint coins seems to have slowed from 1926 onward, with several denominations of D-Mint dates being available by the roll for several years afterward.

While MS gems are readily available, these are almost all poorly struck to varying degrees. The shield and Liberty's trunk area are almost always indistinct, as is the eagle's breast. Full Head examples are extremely rare, Jay Cline placing the population at 1% or fewer of surviving MS coins. 1928-D quarters are a bit scarce in the higher circulated grades, but the commonness of MS coins keeps their values low.

Varieties of any kind are unusual for this coin series, yet there's a nice repunched mintmark (RPM) for 1928-D. This variety will be attributed by NGC under its VarietyPlus Service.

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.
