Description & Analysis

Some 950 proofs were coined, though it's not certain that all were placed with collectors. The change in weight standard that went into effect the following year made these coins obsolete, and any few on hand at that time were subject to melting. The mints were not too particular about this, however, as there are documented cases of proofs being sold of earlier dates. In any case, this issue is not rare. Indeed, it is more common than Mint State examples, and values reflect this fact. A generous number of Cameo proofs have been certified, though these may include some duplication.

As was usual for silver proofs of the period, just a single die pair was employed. The reverse die includes a raised line flaw on the left border of the eagle's shield, and this die reappeared for several more dates.

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.
