Description & Analysis

Orders for the 1968-S proof sets had quickly exceeded the Mint's capacity to fill orders, and their issue price was soon tripled in the aftermarket. This led to even more unfilled orders in 1969, as the speculation in both dates was high before the new sets were even delivered (in those pre-internet days collectors placed their orders starting November 1 of the previous year, with delivery not even beginning until late winter or early spring!)

The quality of the 1969-S proofs was generally higher than for 1968-S, as employees of the SFAO became more skilled at finishing the dies. Fewer coins are seen from severely overpolished and overused dies. Gems are plentiful, even with Cameo or Ultra Cameo contrast, though still greatly outnumbered by fully brilliant coins having little or not contrast.

Varieties for 1969-S are limited to minor DDOs and DDRs.

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.
