Description & Analysis

The proof coins of 1950 were popular with collectors, but sales advanced only slightly the following year. The speculative market that would drive mintages to and beyond the million mark was still a few years away.

While some of the 1951 quarters show only semi-prooflike brilliance, most are fully brilliant as in later years. Frosty legends and devices were just an occasional and fortunate coincidence for this issue. Both Cameo and Ultra Cameo examples are in limited supply and command strong premiums. Though sophisticated collectors appreciated the difference, there was no such added value in the 1950s and '60s. If these coins had been bringing high prices then, it's likely that the Mint would have made a more conscious effort to standardize a contrasting finish.

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.
