Description & Analysis

The seemingly high mintage of 1834 half dimes is misleading, as this number for the pieces struck during 1834 includes many dated 1832 and 1833, with even earlier dates being possible. The U. S. Mint was quite thrifty and did not discard dies that were still useable. This practice lasted until Robert M. Patterson became Director in 1835 and forbade it.

There are just five die marriages known from the combining of three obverses and three reverses. None are rare, with only LM-3 and LM-5 being moderately scarce. The most popular variety is LM-1 in which numeral 3 was first punched into the die upside down. This feature is somewhat less visible on LM-3, which shares that obverse die.

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.
