Description & Analysis

The mintage of cents dated 1798 was quite large, as shown in the figure above, which includes those coined during 1799. There are dozens of die marriages for this date, and three of these are overdates covered in a separate entry.

Of the others, three have the Reverse of 95 with a single leaves at the top of the wreath. The remaining marriages come with the normal, double-leaf wreath and one of two obverse styles: That known as First Hair (S-144 through S-164) has no additional curl on the Liberty portrait, while the Second Hair subtype (S-165 through S-187) has the extra curl.

Of the non-overdate varieties, the following are rare: S-144, -146, -147, -149, -156, NC-1, NC-2 (all First Hair), -177, -178, -180 and -183 (all Second Hair).

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.
