Description & Analysis

In Breen's 1977 opus on proof coinage, he recorded seven individual examples of this date, suggesting that some duplication may exist among coins in his list. Neither he nor Larry Briggs have estimated the number originally struck, but it probably was not more than 20 pieces. David Akers suggested that all 1847 proof quarters were coined for inclusion in the 10 to 15 proof sets that were issued in 1847.

All proofs have the normal date with no repunching or recutting, and the reverse is from the same proof die used in 1846. Our current research into early proof Seated Liberty rarities suggests that about eight examples are known today, about half of the original mintage.
