Description & Analysis

By 1952 the proof sets of 1950-51 had already risen in price, as more collectors were drawn to the series. This prompted higher sales in 1952, the final mintage advancing about 50% over the previous year.

Gems having a fully brilliant finish on fields and devices are plentiful, and a number of examples have slightly frosted devices on one or both sides. Coins having enough contrast on both sides to be designated as Cameo are scarce, while Ultra Cameo proofs are extremely rare for this date.

The Wexler/Flynn book on Washington Quarter doubled-dies lists and illustrates two DDR varieties. One is distinctive enough to be collectable, while the other is extremely minor. Another oddity that has gained a strong following is the so-called Superbird quarter. It display a raised line in the shape of letter S on the eagle's breast, and this reminds some of Superman's uniform. This is just a lint impression from a cloth used to wipe the die, something quite commonly seen on proof coins, though normally found without this coin's distinctive shape.

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.
