Description & Analysis

Despite a very substantial mintage, the 1835 half dollar is less often seen in Mint State than the several preceding dates, though there are a great many "near miss" examples. Gems of this issue are quite scarce. It's likely that some portion of the 1835 coinage included pieces dated 1834 or even 1833. The U. S. Mint was not particular about such matters when the dies remained serviceable, and it was until Mint Director Robert M. Patterson assumed office during 1835 that this practice was finally stopped.

All 1835 half dollars were coined from dies featuring the new bust of 1834, in combination with the Small Date and Small Letters likewise introduced in 1834. As a consequence, there are no popular varieties, and none of the ten die marriages are scarce. These resulted from the pairing of eight obverse dies with a like number of reverses.

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.
