Description & Analysis

This was the first coinage of cents at the San Francisco Mint since 1931, and enough were produced to make this issue common in all circulated grades. Fully red gems are not rare, but they are more elusive than for most other issues of the 1930s. Many survivors reveals soft strikes and/or worn dies, so buyers should take their time to select a superior specimen, regardless of numeric grade.

Only minor varieties are known for this issue.

The recovering American economy prompted a resurgence of activity at the three mints during 1934-35, and this was noted in the Mint Director's Annual Report: "The coinage mints operated for long periods on the basis of two shifts or three shifts daily."

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.
