Description & Analysis

This is yet another instance in the Standing Liberty series where a fairly low mintage did not create a rarity. Several rolls survived of the 1929-S quarter dollar for decades, and Mint State examples of average or better quality are plentiful. The onset of the Great Depression this same year led to the idling of many newly-struck coins, and 1929-S pieces of all denominations were still being released several years later alongside coins of those later years.

This is the most common San Francisco Mint Type 2 quarter in its percentage of Full Head specimens. Jay Cline put this percentage at 5% of MS coins. While certainly not common, there are enough certified FH 1929-S gems to meet the demand from advanced collectors.

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.
