Description & Analysis

1858 has long been considered the first year in which United States proof coins are generally collectable. Indeed, sales rose dramatically starting in 1858, as the Mint finally published guidelines for its proof sales for both onsite and mail orders. Old coin albums for proof coins traditionally began with this date, due to the greater availability of 1858 and subsequent years.

No formaly records exist which would provide a firm figure for the number of proof trimes sold in 1858, and estimates range from 210 to more than 300 pieces. Scholar Walter Breen was probably closest with his simple notation "?"

The greater number of survivors for 1858 relative to earlier years has also provided a very small but collectable pool of Cameo specimens. A single proof die is repunched 1858/1-58.

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.
