Description & Analysis

The speculative frenzy in proof-only trade dollars peaked this year, as nearly 2,000 proofs were sold. The usual press runs of 50-100 coins at a time were replaced with much larger numbers, particularly during the early months of 1880.

This high mintage is reflected in the availability of proofs today. While common within the context of the series, 1000+ survivors is still a relatively small figure as compared to more popular coins of later vintage. Gems are sufficiently available to be attractive to type collectors, and Cameo examples are also fairly plentiful. As with all dates in this series, however, Ultra Cameo coins are rare.

Two obverse dies were utilized for this large mintage, but there presently exists no interest in collecting proofs by varieties.

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.
