Description & Analysis

This large mintage issue is common in all circulated grades, though it is less available in Mint State than the most common P-Mint half dimes of the 1840s.

There are several repunched date varieties, and attributing these has proved to be a real challenge for numismatists. Traditionally, these have been lumped into two categories: 1849/8 and 1849/6, but the latter is not really distinct as to the underlying numeral or numerals. Unless and until the matter is proved with certainty, NGC will label these coins as simply RPD with the Fivaz/Stanton number.

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.
