Description & Analysis

To the 600 pieces sold within silver proof sets may be added an unknown quantity purchased as part of the four-coin minor proof sets. Fully red gems are quite rare, with most survivors having streaky, red-brown surfaces from incomplete mixing of the alloy.

The administration of Mint Director Henry Linderman was notable for the countless restrikes, patterns and complete fantasies that emanated from the Mint. Linderman was himself a collector, and he was quite accommodating to his fellow numismatists without regard to the legality of the coins or the effect that their manufacture would have on the existing market.

It's believed that the many proof 1868 cents known with the reverse die rotated 180 degrees from normal may have been restrikes made to satisfy the growing coin market of the late 1860s and early '70s.

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.
