Description & Analysis

The proof silver dollars of 1849 are extremely rare, with perhaps a dozen survivors from an unknown mintage. The finest of these is from the Phil Kaufman Collection of proof Seated Liberty coinage. Gems are very rare, and the NGC Census also includes one graded as PF AU Details.

Two die marriages are known for the proofs of this date. All but one specimen are from OC-P1, which features the veteran reverse die of 1840. A coin that may be unique was struck with the same obverse die but a different reverse not found with other dates.

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.
