Description & Analysis

Starting this year a concerted effort was made to coin no more proofs than the Mint could sell, and the 460 sets produced for 1863 turned out to be a good estimate of actual sales.

The low mintage of currency pieces in 1863 has placed extra demand on the far more available proofs, though this has not really translated into higher prices. There are simply not many collectors of high grade half dimes by date. Both the proofs and the currency strikes that followed them from the same die pair display a repunched date.

Proof restrikes were coined during the 1870s, probably as a consequence of collectors discovering how rare the currency strikes of this date were then and remain today. The restrikes are identifiable by a broken top to letter D in UNITED, a flaw in the master hub that did not appear until 1871.

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.
