Description & Analysis

This first half dollar emission from the newly opened Denver Mint shares with its Philadelphia cousin a generous supply of Mint State coins. Most of these are well struck and have excellent luster, though gems exist in somewhat limited numbers. Circulated pieces are fairly available across all grades.

A misplaced date variety quite similar to that of 1906(P) halves is known. The placement of the errant zero within the denticles below the date is nearly identical. Since both dies were made at the Philadelphia Mint it was mere chance that dictated the facilities at which they would be used.

A few examples has been described as Specimen or Branch Mint Proof coins, but these have not been verified through professional certification.

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.
