Description & Analysis

There are five overdate die marriages for 1802 dollars. Each of these utilized obverse dies that were unique to those marriages, but some of the reverse dies were shared with other marriages dated 1801, 1802 and 1803. Die state studies reveal that the later dates were sometimes coined before the earlier dates, making the published mintages for each calendar year a bit misleading. BB-235 is rare, while the other four are relatively common.

Mint State coins are scarce but available at a high price. Most survivors fall into the mid-grades of VG to VF, a typical situation for silver dollars of this period. The dollars of 1801-03 were well made in relation to earlier issues, with strong strikes from fresh or just moderately worn dies being the norm.

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.
