Description & Analysis

With the hobby enjoying steady growth during the prosperous 1950s, the number of persons buying proof sets rose rapidly. While most collectors had previously purchased just a single set each year, the rising values for 1936-42 and 1950-51 sets prompted a speculative market to develop around this time. It was now common for buyers to purchase five or more sets in the hope of turning a profit. Thus, sales nearly doubled during 1954.

More coins having been struck has resulted in a greater number of certified gems, though the percentage of these qualifying for the Cameo designation is quite small. Census figures skew this ratio in favor of the Cameo pieces, which are more likely to be submitted for grading. Ultra Cameo proofs of the 1954 dime are very rare.

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.
