Description & Analysis

The original mintage of 1858 proof silver coins is open to question. The long estimated number struck is 80 pieces. However, this mintage figure did not originate with mint records, but apparently with one of the Chapman brothers. Later estimates of the 1858 silver proofs rose to between 225 and 300 coins, based largely on David Bowers' research on the 1858 proof dollar for his Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States treatise. The 300-piece figure was extrapolated to the other 1858 silver proof denominations, and found its way into the current Red Book. Based on the certified population, it would appear their mintage was probably between 80 and 200 and some specimens. In any event, 1858 proof quarters are rare in the Gem and finer levels of preservation.
