Description & Analysis

The 1843 proof dollar is very rare. David Bowers, in his Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States, estimates that 15 to 25 pieces were struck, and that between five and nine pieces have survived to the present day. Walter Breen, in his Proof Encyclopedia, enumerates eight specimens. David Akers (1997) agrees with these figures and indicates that he has personally seen six different examples, with the possible existence of a 'few more.'
