Description & Analysis

Circulated examples of this date are comparable in rarity to the 1844 dollar of similar mintage, though Mint State survivors are more scarce. Nearly all of the latter are in low range, with choice pieces being very rare and no gems confirmed. The quality of strike for this issue is similar to most Seated Liberty dollars, with the usual trouble spots being the star centrals and the upper portion of the eagle's right wing.

All of the currency strikes were produced with a single pair of dies, most likely during a single press run, as well. The reverse die is unique to this date. Most examples display either one or two die clashings, with the unclashed die state being very elusive.

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.
