Description & Analysis

The 1844 proof dollar is a great rarity, and we can only account for 10 survivors of this issue. David Bowers, in his silver and trade dollar reference work (1993), estimates the original mintage to be between 20 and 30 pieces, and the number of survivors to be between seven and 14 coins. David Akers, on the other hand, cataloging John Jay Pittman?s 1844 Proof Set, from which the Kaufman specimen came, says: ?I would place the number at the high end of that range, possibly 10-12.?
