Description & Analysis

This issue is moderately scarce across all grades. Examples in the higher circulated grades of XF and AU are very difficult to find and command good prices. Mint State pieces of so-so quality are more available than the modest mintage suggests, and it's conceivable that some of these coins remained in vautls for a few years, as later dates were issued first. This phenomenon applied to several Denver Mint coins of the 1920s, most notably to the 1926 D nickels and quarters.

Fully struck 1924 D nickels are all but unknown, and the weakness shown in the bison's forehead on the example illustrated is characteristic of this issue.

The book by Wexler, Pope and Flynn illustrates three repunched mintmark varieties.

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.
