Description & Analysis

While the mintage of currency strike silver dollars declined in 1845, the number of proofs evidently rose---a little. Osburn and Cushing estimate that 25 proofs are known today, though some duplication may exist in the certified population.

The finest example seems to be the coin formerly in the famed collection of John Jay Pittman. As the Census information below reveals, several other gems are known, a most unusual situation for proof Seated Liberty Dollars of the 1840s.

Two die pairs are known for proofs of this date, both utilizing the perennial reverse of 1840 but with different obverse dies. Most are of the OC-P1 marriage, though the rarity of OC-P2 specimens is of primarily academic interest. It's hard to imagine someone collecting proof 1845 dollars by varieties.

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.
