Description & Analysis

The slightly diminished coinage of cents at Philadelphia during 1957-58 was due to an economic recession during those years. This is nevertheless a common coin in any grade short of MS 67 RD. Most were reasonably well made by 1950s standards, but that's not saying much. The coin illustrated is sharper than most.

Varieties are few, but one in particular is spectacular. A very bold obverse doubled-die is known, but it remains exceedingly rare. What was once heralded as a 1958/7 overdate is now regarded as simply a flaw in the die.

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.
