Description & Analysis

While only seven die marriages are known for 1834 cents, these encompass several distinctive combinations of obverse and reverse features. The sizes of numeral 8, the stars and the reverse letters all vary, and this makes for a very interesting date.

N-6 is the only variety bearing the Large Letters last seen on cents dated 1832 (N-7 also has LL, but this is a proof-only issue). While N-6 is indeed scarce, the only rarity of this date among currency pieces is N-5, which combines a Large 8 with Large Stars and Medium Letters.

Examples grading MS BN are common enough to be collectable, with N-1 through N-4 being the most available varieties (N-4 is illustrated).

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.
