Description & Analysis

The mintage figure for half cents coined during 1828 is believed to have included some pieces struck from 1826-dated dies. In addition, a large percentage of the 1829 deliveries is believed to have included 1828-dated half cents.

Two die marriages are known for 1828 half cents having the normal 13 stars. C-1 is slightly more scarce overall, and this is true especially of Mint State pieces. Variety C-3 has benefitted from the Collins hoard, a group of about 1,000 unworn half cents that surfaced in 1894 and was dispersed in small groups over the next several decades. This source accounts for the many 1828 half cents displaying mint red color but with spotting and staining.

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.
