Description & Analysis

The feverish market in modern proof sets reached its pinnacle in 1957, as seemingly every collector ordered multiple sets. The result was a doubling in proof set sales over 1956 and an adverse reaction to this date's million+ mintage. The market collapsed for a time, only to rebound just a couple years later.

As a percentage of total mintage Cameo proofs are rare, but the great number of dies required for this large mintage increased the absolute numbers of such pieces. As always before the 1970s, Ultra Cameo proofs are very rare.

The Wexler/Ribar book illustrates several DDO and DDR varieties for 1957 nickels, but most of these are minor and of interest only to variety specialists.

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.
