Description & Analysis

Walter Breen, in his Encyclopedia (1988), indicates that as many as eight proofs exist of the 1843 quarter. In the August 3, 1998 Bowers and Merena The Rarities Sale of an NGC PR64 specimen (lot 155), the cataloger states: 'For some unrecorded reason, Proof mintages of silver coins were very low in 1843, considerably smaller than would be the case for the following year, 1844.'

Research reveals only six examples of proof 1843 quarters in auction catalogs of recent decades. They include:

1. PR66 NGC.ÿ1946 ANA Sale (Numismatic Gallery, 8/1946), lot 442 (unplated), John Jay Pittman Collection (David Akers, 5/1998), lot 1309, Phil Kaufman Collection (Heritage, 7/2008), lot 1808, which realized $74,750.
