Description & Analysis

1877 is the final year for which the total sales of proof minor coins has been lost, so the figure of 900 pieces from the silver proof sets should probably be doubled.

This is not a scarce issue in proof format, but the rarity of Mint State currency pieces forces the substitution of proofs in high grade collections, and this drives up prices for the proofs. Cameo pieces, however, are quite rare.

All 1877 proof cents were coined from the newer hub having bold letters N in ONE CENT. The prominently raised right pendant of letter T in CENT is seen on one of the three die pairs used for this date.

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.
