Description & Analysis

This is an issue that is quite plentiful in Mint State from old rolls and even bags, but top-notch examples are rare. Though a fair number of survivors benefit from having been struck with retired proof dies (the Type B reverse), their faintly prooflike surfaces could not spare them from the rough handling they received at the mint and in subsequent handling. The market in modern coins in large quantity reached its apex during the years 1959-64, and countless BU bags were shipped from dealer to dealer and then to an "investor." Few persons sought high quality pieces until decades later, by which time it was too late.

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.
