Description & Analysis

By 1954 prices for proof sets of 1936-42 and 1950-53 had risen high enough to prompt speculative buying of newly issued sets. Persons who had previously ordered just a single set for their own collections now purchased one or more additional sets for future appreciation. The 1954 proof set nearly doubled in sales over that of 1953.

The proof coins of this year were well made. This is the first year for which a fair number of PF 69 coins have been certified. Cameo pieces, while still a small percentage of the total, are readily available to the advanced collector. Ultra Cameo specimens remain rare, though not nearly so much as for earlier dates.

As in 1936-42, proof sets of 1950-55 were packaged with the coins in individual plastic sleeves that were stapled together and shipped in cardboard boxes. The slightly brittle plastic used through 1953 was replaced with a more flexible one in 1954 that provided better protection from contact, yet it also toned the coins more readily.

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.
