Description & Analysis

The cents dated 1831 enjoyed a generous mintage, and die state evidence suggests that a number of them were coined over the next several years, as the Mint scrambled to find any useable dies. Examples grading MS BN may be obtained, but those having more than a trace of red are rare.

The transition from Large Letters reverses to those having Medium Letters progressed to the point where the 13 die marriages of this date are almost evenly divided between the two. The ML varieites do, however, carry some premium. No rarities exist for 1831, but N-4, -5, -8 (photos), -10 and -14 are moderately scarce.

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.
