The NGC Universal ID is a four digit alphanumeric that groups coins based on a unique combination of date, mintmark, denomination and striking process (MS, PF, or SP). These IDs are a simple organization of all coins prior to variety attribution and grading.
The 1846 proof quarter is clearly rarer than the 18-piece certified population would lead us to believe. Many of these coins are likely resubmissions. Numismatic researchers generally believe the extant population is somewhere between 10 and 15 specimens.
Our roster leans toward the low end of those estimates: 1. PR65 NGC. Phil Kaufman Collection (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 2385. We were unable to obtain a definitive match with any of the specimens listed below.
2. PR65 NGC. John Jay Pittman (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 1712, Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 8/1999), lot 140, Central States (Heritage, 5/2000), lot 7304. A spot between the arm and pole, another at the upper left reverse shield corner, a field mark above Liberty?s foot, and a light field scratch paralleling the leg identify this coin.
3. PR64 PCGS. Rarities Sale (Bowers and Merena, 1/2002), lot 407, JFS Collection (Heritage, 8/2004), lot 4042.
4. PR64 PCGS. Auction ?83 (Paramount), lot 106, Jascha Heifetz Collection (Superior, 10/1989), lot 3614.
5. Very Choice Brilliant Proof. Stack?s (9/1997), lot 733.
6. Proof. Smithsonian Institution.
A. PR65 NGC. Superior (10/2000), lot 4359, Ira and Larry Goldberg (6/2002), lot 2205.
B. PR64. The Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. Collection (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997), lot 1439.
C. PR64 or finer. The Norweb Collection, Part II (Bowers and Merena, 3/1988), lot 1581.
D. Brilliant Proof. Floyd T. Starr Collection (Stack?s 10/1992), lot 404. Catalogers say ?hairline scratch across obverse.?
