Description & Analysis

In 1921, Farran Zerbe was one of the country's most prominent numismatists. He actively promoted the hobby through a touring exhibit "Money of the World." He was also instrumental in the creation of the Peace dollar.

Because of his involvement in the Peace dollar program, Zerbe wanted to have examples of the coin on hand for the ANA show in the summer of 1921. Unfortunately, the Mint was behind schedule with production, and could not deliver any coins to Zerbe. Therefore, as a personal favor to the influential numismatist, the Mint struck somewhere between 20 and 200 coins for Zerbe, which he then distributed.

It's important to note that many numismatists don't consider the Zerbe strikes to be true proof coins, as they often lack the mirrored fields and squared rims.

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.
