Description & Analysis

Without the added exposure of 1876's centennial exposition, sales of proof coins fell this year to a level that better reflects the number of serious collectors at the time. Some have challenged the very low figure of 510 proofs found in most reference books, citing a production of 200 pieces struck early in the year that may or may not have been proofs. In his 1993 encyclopedia of silver dollars, Q. David Bowers utilized a figure of 710 proofs, though acknowledging that this was uncertain.

In any case, the availability of proofs for this date is comparable to other entries in the series to that point, aside from the unusual 1876 entry and the later, proof-only coins. Cameo examples are available to the advanced collector, but ones certified as Ultra Cameo are extremely rare. All 1877 proof trade dollars features dies taken from the newer obverse and reverse hubs created in 1876 and 1875, respectively.

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.
