Description & Analysis

In the mid-1850s, beginning with 1854, survival of Proof Seated Dollars seems to have increased from former years. Like previous years, the number of survivors is not specifically known, and is subject to debate. Walter Breen suggested that 50 to 60 examples still exist, while Dave Bowers felt the actual number of survivors is much smaller, in the range of 20 to 30 coins. Current research suggests that the actual number of pieces known today is more in line with the thoughts of Breen on this matter.
