Description & Analysis

There was just a single die pair for the proof silver dollars of 1843. The obverse die was used exclusively for the proof strikings, and the reverse is the durable die from 1840 that was used again and again as late as 1854.

Though Osburn and Cushing provide a survival estimate of 15 pieces, this figure is likely a bit high. It's based on certified grading results which, for such a valuable coin, probably include some repeat submissions. No examples have been certified higher than PF 64, with most falling somewhat short of this mark. The delicate surfaces of proof coins had little chance of surviving unimpaired when safe storage materials didn't exist until more than a century later.

NGC Price and Value Guides Disclaimer

Disclaimer: The prices listed in the various NGC Price and Value Guides are compiled from a number of independent, third party sources in the numismatic community which NGC believes to be reliable. Prices provided are averages, not specific prices for individual coins. Further, because these prices are only updated from time to time, they do not reflect short term pricing trends, which are quite common and are often quite dramatic, given the volatile nature of the collectible coin marketplace. This is especially true for rare coins, where there are fewer sales and greater variations in sale prices. For all of these reasons, the prices in these guides are designed to serve merely as one of many measures and factors that coin buyers and sellers can use in determining coin values. These prices are not intended, and should not be relied upon, to replace the due diligence and — when appropriate — expert consultation that coin buyers and sellers should undertake when entering into a coin transaction. As such, NGC disclaims all warranties, express or implied, with respect to the information contained in the NGC Guides. By using the NGC Guides, the user agrees that neither NGC nor any of its affiliates, shareholders, officers, employees or agents shall have any liability for any loss or damage of any kind, including without limitation any loss arising from reliance on the information contained in the Guides.
