Description & Analysis

The total mintage of 1964-dated quarters represents three years of coinage, as Congress authorized a date freeze to combat the national coin shortage. Philadelphia's production of this issue was evenly divided between those struck in 1964 and those made the following year. The San Francisco Assay Office began striking 1964(P) quarters in 1965, making over 15 million that year and 4.6 million in the opening months of 1966. Most of these later strikings went straight to hoarders, as the first copper-nickel-clad quarters had been released in November of 1965.

Examples are plentiful through MS 66, but the population drops off in higher grades. Many 1964(P) quarters were poorly made, as the mints were focused solely on quantity over quality. Numerous varieties are known, including a richer than usual crop of doubled-die reverses. Also highly sought are the Type B Reverse coins struck from retired or unneeded proof dies. With proof mintages reaching nearly four million pieces, such dies were made in large numbers.

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.
