Description & Analysis

The 1814 half dollar was another in a string of dates to enjoy million+ mintages. The certified population of Mint State coins is higher than for most previous dates in the series, and there are enough gems to satisfy the more advanced collectors. Buyers, however, should try to avoid the many examples which were coined from extremely clashed and/or worn dies.

There are nine die marriages known for 1814, these resulting from combinations of eight obverse dies and nine reverses. O-106 is the only rarity, but it of interest solely to specialists. More popular are the O-101 overdate (treated in a following entry) and O-108, the "E over A" variety. While punching the word STATES into the die, the engraver lost his place and punched a letter A where the E should be. The error was caught before the die went into service and then crudely corrected. No attempt was made to hide the underlying A, which remained clearly readable.

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.
