Description & Analysis

Akers estimated that five or six 1845 proof quarters survive when he cataloged the Pittman coin more than a decade ago. Larry Briggs wrote in his Liberty Seated Quarters book that about six proof are known, and Walter Breen gave a similar total of six pieces known in his Complete Encyclopedia.

The following roster of 1845 proof quarters results from our survey of auction records:

1. PR66 NGC. Menjou Collection (Numismatic Gallery, June 1950), lot 715, John J. Pittman (David Akers, May 1998), lot 1711, as part of a complete 1845 proof set, the Phil Kaufman Collection (Heritage FUN Sale, 1/2008), lot 3030, the Scott Rudolph Collection (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 3765.

2. PR65 NGC. William Dickinson Collection (Chapman Brothers, March 1894), J. M. Clapp, Clapp Estate (1942), Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr., Eliasberg Estate (Bowers and Merena, April 1997), lot 1437, Phil Kaufman, Bowers and Merena (January 1999), lot 1112.

3. PR63. Earle Collection, Ryder Collection, New Netherlands (49th Sale, June 1957), lot 1152.

4. Proof. Smithsonian Institution.
