Description & Analysis

1858 was the first year in which the U. S. Mint publicly advertised its sales of proof coins, though experienced numismatists had known of them for several years. The figure of 200 1858 proof cents coined is merely an estimate, and the exact figure will never be known.

This is a rare issue given the great popularity of small cent collecting. The Large Letters proofs appear to be somewhat more rare than the Small Letters variety, and indeed, only a single die pair is known. Unlike the currency pieces, which typically are weakly struck at head and tail, these proofs are needle-sharp and have very reflective fields.

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.
