Description & Analysis

A very large mint for the Denver Mint led to comprises in quality, as the dies were used long after they ceased to be fit. The example illustrated reveals an obverse die with only moderate wear paired with a tired and quite blurry reverse die.

Circulated examples are common in lower grades, but XF and AU coins are surprisingly difficult to find without damage or corrosion. Mint State BN or RB pieces are not too challenging, but fully red cents are rare. As was normal for bronze coins, the best struck pieces were the ones least likely to survive with much red color.

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.
