Description & Analysis

1818 is another high mintage date that is readily available in all circulated grades and is also plentiful in Mint State for a handful of varieties.

Some 10 die marriages exist for this date, with N-10 (photos) being by far the most common courtesy of the Randall Hoard. This source provided collectors with thousands of Mint State pieces, many of them having much red color, though often spotted or stained. This variety is immediately recognizable by the circle of die cracks connecting all stars with the date.

The only rare die marriage is N-4, though N-2, -3, -5, -8 and -9 are moderately scarce.

The 1818 cent is a popular choice with type collectors and is reasonably priced in all but the highest grades.

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.
