Description & Analysis

The SMS coins dated 1967 are generally superior to those of 1965-67, the dies having been more skillfully polished and less often overpolished. In fact, these coins are superior in workmanship to many of the actual proofs coined during 1968. The percentage of Cameo and Ultra Cameo examples is higher than for the two preceding issues, though the numeric grades are still held in check by the minor contact marks that resulted from careless handling prior to packaging. Of course, collectors didn't know in advance that this year's coins would be an improvement, and sales fell considerably from 1965-66.

Varieties are limited for 1967, but a particularly popular one features a quadrupled-obverse die. that is most evident in JFK's hair.

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.
