Description & Analysis

The 1910-S half dollar is relatively common in all grades below AU. Mint State coins are in very limited supply and are actually more scarce than the low-mintage 1910(P) issue. Most such pieces are quite nice, though usually falling short of the gem (MS-65) level. David Lawrence observed that 1910-S halves sometimes display "mumps," a sinking of the obverse die that resulted in shallow, raised areas.

Two different mintmark punches may be found for this entry, but they are so similar as to attract little interest from collectors. A repunched mintmark is illustrated in Kevin Flynn's book, but the photo is not very convincing.

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.
