Description & Analysis

This is among the more available matte proofs of the Lincoln design. Even so, the number of survivors displaying original red color is quite small.

The term "matte" is misleading, as these are actually satin proofs. The coins were not sandblast after striking like the gold proofs, but rather have the natural texture imparted by the dies. Since the models for the Lincoln Cent had textured surfaces to reduce glare, a style in vogue among artists at the time, this feature is most evident on proofs due to their fuller strikes. In addition, the proof dies were lightly sandblasted to give them the fine, crystalline grain unique to the proofs.

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.
