Description & Analysis

Despite a modest mintage, 1947-S quarters were widely hoarded, and gems are plentiful through MS 67. Some of these are quite prooflike, as a consequence of aggressive die polishing. Such action was taken to remove die-clash impressions and to smooth out fields ravaged by erosion lines through overuse of the dies. While these prooflike coins are highly prized, they sometimes reveal missing or shallow design elements.

The several DDO varieties for this issue are all quite minor. It is the repunched mintmark varieties of 1947-S that have attracted collector interest, and all feature the Trumpet-Tail S, the only punch used for this date.

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.
