Description & Analysis

Proof sales rose more than 50% from 1954 to 1955, a sign that many persons were buying multiple sets that exceeded their own collecting needs. This would remain an annual tradition for years to come, with just a slight setback during 1958.

The packaging of proof coins in individual sleeves stapled to one another gave way mid-year to a "pliofilm" envelope in which all five coins were heat sealed in a side-by-side arrangement. Both forms of packaging were used in 1955, though few proof sets of that year still remain in Mint packaging today.

Gems of the 1955 proof dime are plentiful through PF 69, perhaps as a result of this improved packaging. The number of pieces certifiable as Cameo rose, too, and even Ultra Cameo examples become collectable starting with 1955. These are nonetheless quite rare as a percentage of the overall total and bring strong prices.

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.
