Description & Analysis

Proof quarter dollars of 1848 seem to be more rare than those of 1845-47, perhaps because the number of complete proof sets produced was smaller. Walter Breen estimated that "Perhaps 10 proofs..." survive, but this figure is a bit on the high side.

Larry Briggs indicated that both of the two obverse dies he identified were used to coin proofs, a most unusual situation. Not surprisingly, the reverse die with which they were paired was the same one seen on 1846-47 proofs.
