Description & Analysis

The earliest regular proof gold coinage years, from 1859 to the end of the Civil War, saw mintages radically in flux, yet a fairly consistent number of pieces sold. Among the more interesting perspectives on this topic is that of Garrett and Guth, who write about this issue in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: 'Although the Mint increased production of Proof eagles to 69 pieces in 1861, the number of pieces sold appears to have been the same amount as in the previous two years. This conclusion is based on the number of survivors, which seems identical for 1859, 1860, and 1861 issues.'

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.
