Description & Analysis

Most 1901 proof nickels were well made, with sharp strikes and at least some contrast between fields and devices. In most instances this is not sufficient for a Cameo designation, and such pieces are rare.

The sales of proofs during the first decade of the 20th Century were generally poor as compared to the preceding 20 years, though the new cent in 1909 prompted renewed interest. This date is moderately scarce, though not truly rare.

The new reverse hub which debuted in 1901 appears to have been used for all proofs of this date. Collector interest in these very minor differences has been too low to elicit much study of their relative rarities.

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.
