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.
Akers estimated that five or six 1845 proof quarters survive when he cataloged the Pittman coin more than a decade ago. Larry Briggs wrote in his Liberty Seated Quarters book that about six proof are known, and Walter Breen gave a similar total of six pieces known in his Complete Encyclopedia.

1. PR66 NGC. Menjou Collection (Numismatic Gallery, June 1950), lot 715, John J. Pittman (David Akers, May 1998), lot 1711, as part of a complete 1845 proof set, the Phil Kaufman Collection (Heritage FUN Sale, 1/2008), lot 3030, the Scott Rudolph Collection (Heritage, 1/2009), lot 3765.
