Description & Analysis

Production diminished just a bit from the previous year, this a response to the rapid retirement of three-cent fractional notes and the introduction in 1866 of a copper-nickel five-cent coin.

This date is noticeably more scarce in Mint State than the two earlier entries, as the novelty of Longacre's new coin had clearly worn off by 1867. Most example display so-so strikes, with weakness typically being seen on the lower curls of Liberty's hair and the Roman III. Frequent clashing of the dies and repolishing to remove these lines left the shallower features of the design partially effaced, as seen in the legend and some of the leaves on the specimen illustrated.

A minor doubled-die obverse variety is known, along with a few minor repunched dates, but this date is otherwise free of varieties.

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.
