Description & Analysis

Once again the Denver Mint produced the sharpest nickels in 1949, though coins having either 5FS or 6FS remain quite scarce. It seems that the nickels from all three mints in 1949 were of mediocre quality as compared to the years immediately preceding. This general decline in quality became more obvious as the 1950s progressed.

The several D/D varieties for this issue are of little note, but the very obvious D/S die is one of the most desired varieties in the Jefferson series. Examples are rare in all grades, but this is especially true of Mint State survivors.

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.
