Description & Analysis

The Philadelphia Mint half dollar of 1867 is moderately scarce in lower circulated grades, and it becomes much more elusive in grades XF and higher. Mint State survivors are genuinely rare, but they tend to be well struck from unworn dies. Gems are extremely rare.

Eight obverse dies and seven reverses have been identified, and these were used in various combinations for a total of 10 die marriages known to Wiley and Bugert. Others may yet surface. Collars were used having either 150, 152 or 153 reeds.

Varieties for this issue are sparse, with a very minor repunched date known (WB-102).

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.
