Description & Analysis

The 1828 is one of those curious issues whose rarity is so complete that it simply is not well known to collectors because it is so infrequently offered. This piece last sold in the 1982 Eliasberg Collection of gold and an extensive passage was reproduced from Max Mehl's cataloging of another coin that was in the Dunham Collection. This is quite an interesting passage and one that is noteworthy because of the price history he cites from the turn of the century to 1922. The first coin offered for sale this century was the Harlan P. Smith piece in 1906 where the coin realized a substantial price at the time of $240. The Stickney specimen brought $360--a 66% increase in price in one year. The next collection to have an example was the James Ten Eyck Sale in 1922, where an XF was sold for $680 plus 5% commission. Akers estimates that perhaps as many as 12-15 specimens may still exist today, while Miller places the number extant lower, rating the Perfect Date an R.7 with six confirmed. Both Akers and Mehl (in his write-up from the Dunham Sale) compared the 1828 to the legendary 1815.

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.
