Description & Analysis

The hiring of Christian Gobrecht in 1835 as Second Engraver under the largely disabled William Kneass ushered in a period of great experimentation at the U. S. Mint. Both the technology and the artistry of the Mint took great leaps forward.

The cents of 1835 are transitional, six obverse dies bearing the old Matron Head by Scot, known as the Head of 34 (left), while five newer dies featured Gobrecht's trimmer Head of 36 (right). The former included either Large 8 with Large Stars or Small 8 with Small Stars. These various dies were combine with multiple reverse dies to create some 18 die marriages.

The Large 8/Large Stars varieties are more scarce as a class than the others and carry a modest premium. With so many die marriages some were bound to be rare, and these include N-4, -10, -11, -18 and -19.

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.
