Description & Analysis

The low business strike mintage of only 15,000 pieces--less whatever quantity may have been melted in the Orient or elsewhere in the intervening 160 years--makes proof examples of this issue doubly attractive. Q. David Bowers' Silver Dollars and Trade Dollars of the United States: A Complete Encyclopedia, (1993) estimates that 25 to 35 proof pieces were coined, further guessing that nine to 17 examples survive today. In the 2006 A Buyer's Guide to Silver Dollars & Trade Dollars of the United States, third edition, Bowers more cogently estimates that only three to five examples exist in PR64 or better. Of course, it was a full 10 years after the production of this issue that the Mint began widely proclaiming its offerings of proof coinage to the general public, rather than only to the privileged few.

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.
