Description & Analysis

This first subtype of 1840 was coined during the first three quarters of the year, before the Mint adopted the new Hughes interpretation. Its mintage was thus lower than usual for the Philadelphia Mint, and examples are slightly scarce in Mint State and rare at the gem level. Most coins are found well struck, except at the borders where the denticles are often blurred or incomplete.

There are no true varieties for this issue. Series specialists do seek one die state in which deep polishing lines at Liberty's neck simulate the appearance of a crude beard. This is included within Gerry Fortin's Top 100.

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.
