Description & Analysis

The large number of dies prepared for 1798's silver dollar coinage included one that was overdated 1799/8 the following year. This could be accomplished only with a die not previously used, as the hardening process precluded alterations to the date, thus there are no coins known from this die prior to its being overdated.

The single overdated die was used in combination with three different reverses. BB-141 is the most common marriage, with BB-142 being less often seen. BB-143 is scarce in relation to the others, though few collectors seek this series by die marriages. Most person desiring a 1799/8 overdate do not care which of the three they obtain. BB-141 is the only one that is reasonably available in Mint State or grades close to it.

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.
