Description & Analysis

The proof silver and minor coins of 1876 all have enlarged mintages, as Philadelphia hosted that year's USA Centennial exposition. A tour of the mint and the purchasing of souvenir coins were both anticipated by visitors to the fair at a time when family vacations typically lasted weeks or even months. Thus, this date is more common than others of the period, and it is one of a very few from that decade certified as Ultra Cameo.

Three die marriages are known from the combining of two obverses with three reverses. One reverse is the Type 1 die dating from 1872, while the other two were taken from the new Type 2 hub on which letters TAT of STATES are clear of one another.

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.
