Description & Analysis

The speculative mania for modern (1936 to date) proof sets reached its apex in 1957, and sales nearly doubled over those of the previous year to more than a million sets. This figure, however, shocked and scared away many resale buyers. The result was a temporary setback in the market that is reflected in 1958 proof sales.

The 1957 proof dime is common in all grades through PF 69. The large number of dies required for such a big mintage resulted in a greater than usual population of Cameo and even Ultra Cameo specimens. The latter are not truly common, but they are far more available than for earlier dates.

One proof die created proof dimes that display tripling on the date, the initials JS and the motto IN GOD WE TRUST. This is a sharp variety that merits more attention than it has received.

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.
