Description & Analysis

The Denver Mint struck a number of quarter dollars that was comparable to 1941's production, which is surprising given the rapid build-up of Ameirca's economy. It's possible that the agricultural sector, a big component of the Denver Mint's service territory, was not as greatly affected by the step-up in production typical of both coasts.

1942-D quarters were well made in comparison to those of the other two mints, a typical condition for the war years. Gems are plentiful, with even a fairly large number of MS 67 examples available to advanced collectors.

Doubled-die varieties are known for both obverse and reverse, and some of these are quite extreme. Only under wartime conditions would such dies have been put into service. This issue is a cherrypicker's delight for doubled-dies. Also known are a few repunched mintmarks.

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.
