Description & Analysis

The mintage of proof 1892 nickels was higher than typical for that decade. This did not reflect greater interest in this denomination, rather it was the result of higher silver proof set sales, as collectors sought the three new silver designs by Charles Barber. The cent and nickel were included in each such set, and they just went along for the ride.

Proof 1892 nickels were not as well made as those of 1891, and the population of certified gems is lower than one would expect. Cameo pieces are very scarce. Some proof 1892 nickels show striking weakness in one or more places, and such coins should be avoided.

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.
