Description & Analysis

A nationwide recession in 1957-58, combined with an alarming overproduction of proof sets in 1957, led to a 30% drop in sales of the 1958 proofs. This is nevertheless a very common cent in fully red gem.

Cameo pieces, while certainly not common, exist in sufficient numbers to satisfy the demand. Ultra Cameo coins are slightly more available than for previous years, but they are still quite rare overall.

The huge number of circulating cents coined during the 1950s wore out the master hubs, most notably the obverse. Even on proofs Lincoln's beard looks more like an elongated jaw than whiskers. The Mint did nothing to address this problem until 1969, when a new master obverse hub was introduced.

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.
