Description & Analysis

Despite a slightly higher mintage, this subtype for 1883 is less common than the No CENTS proofs, though neither is rare. The probable explanation is that many of the 6,783 pieces coined in the latter part of 1883 were actually No CENTS proofs. To accommodate steady demand, the Mint continued to make both editions available, as well as the 1883 Shield Nickel, throughout the year.

The With CENTS nickel proofs were generally well made, and a suitable supply of gems has been certified by NGC. Also collectable are Cameo proofs, though Ultra Cameo examples remain very rare.

There is one die showing a triple-punched numeral 1 in the date, but this tripling is minor and, thus far, of little interest.

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.
