Description & Analysis

A combination of bureaucracy and internal resistance to proof sales delaying the postwar resumption of this coinage until 1950. Henceforth, only complete sets would be offered each year, and sales were thus uniform across all denominations. The 51,386 sets sold in 1950 seemed high to collectors at the time, but this figure would become quaint within just a few years.

The first proofs made for 1950 were satiny or semi-brilliant, and collector complaints prompted more thorough polishing of the dies and planchets. The resulting coins were fully brilliant, though overly aggressive polishing of the dies left them with missing or incomplete features to the more shallow elements of the design.

Though scarce in relation to later dates, gems of the 1950 proof nickel are not rare. Even Cameo proofs are available to advanced collectors, though Ultra Cameo pieces are very elusive.

A minor doubled-die reverse variety is known for the 1950 proof nickel, but this has drawn little interest among collectors.

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.
