Description & Analysis

With its very high mintage, the 1883 cent is readily available in all but the highest grades. The date on these coins is sharply curved in conformation with the border arc, and this would be the norm for Indian Head Cents through the remainder of the series.

This date is rich in die-punching varieties, most notably the MPD (Misplaced Date). Such varieties are similar in concept to repunched dates, but the extra numerals are not in contact with those of the main impression. For example, the tops of extra numerals may be seen within the denticles or overlapping Liberty's portrait.

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.
