Description & Analysis

The half cents dated 1807 were coined on planchets imported from Matthew Boulton & Company in England, as were all half cents of the Draped Bust type from 1803 onward.

Only a single die pair is known for this date, and this essentially proves that the published mintage figure is too high, as the Mint could not then achieve nearly half a million strikes from each die. Walter Breen suggested a net mintage of 38,000+ after deducting those struck in 1807 but dated 1806. This figure seems too small, given the general availability of circulated 1807 half cents, and the truth probably lies somewhere in-between the extremes. Mint State examples are very 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.
