Description & Analysis

With the coin shortage officially declared over, mintmarks once again appeared on United States coins, though all were henceforth placed on each coin's obverse.

So many nickels had been coined 1964-67 that production for 1968 was relatively low from both the Denver and San Francisco Mints. This issue is plentiful in gem condition, though coins having either 5FS or 6FS are very rare. Despite retouching of the reverse master hub which sharpened some features of Monticello, the troublesome steps were little affected. This feature would remain incomplete on most coins until entirely new hubs were created in 1971.

Minor DDO varieties are known for 1968 D nickels, as well as a few decent RPM varieties that have as yet failed to catch on with 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.
