Description & Analysis

The actual number of proof, No L 1864 bronze cents sold is uncertain, and other sources put the figure at either 300, 150 or simply 100+. The lower numbers represent the pieces sold as part of the silver proof sets, but it's likely that additional pieces were sold with the minor proof sets. This will never be known with any accuracy, as the records of proof minor coin sales before 1878 were destroyed in 1925.

What we do know for certain is that gem examples, particularly those having much red or any degree of cameo contrast are quite rare. This is one of the keys to the series of proof Indian Head Cents.

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.
