Description & Analysis

The coin collecting hobby reached its all time high watermark of popularity in the spring of 1964, with the prices of both vintage and recent coin issues peaking at levels that would not be seen again for many years afterward. This speculative activity was driven to a frenzy with the release of the new Kennedy Half Dollar in March, and the highly sought coin pushed proof set production to nearly four million. The Mint struggled to fill these orders, and countless more sets could have been sold if sales had not been cut off.

The urgency of striking so many proof coins led to a slight dip in average quality, as the dies were used more than was ideal. Still, there are huge numbers of gem 1964 quarters both raw and certified. Cameo and Ultra Cameo examples are more abundant than for earlier years, due in no small part to the great number of dies employed. Each die, when new, was likely to have frosty die cavities.

A minor DDO variety is known, but it has not attracted much attention from collectors.

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.
