Description & Analysis

Die marriages S-120 and S-121 are known with either the normal, plain edge or an experimental "gripped" edge. This consists of a series of indentations on the edge which look like knife cuts running at a right angle to the die faces. These marriages are also two of only three for the date having the old Reverse of 95 with a the upper right part of the wreath ending in a single leaf (the other is the very rare NC-1, plain edge).

S-120b (photos) is fairly common, while S-121b is only slightly scarce. Both may obtained at just a modest premium over the most common varieties.

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.
