Description & Analysis

At least three distinct specimens are known of the 1849 proof quarter dollar, with additional pieces rumored. The difficulty in determining an exact population stems from the crudeness of auction catalogs of past years. The coins were usually plated, but the images were too small or too dark to be effectively compared against modern appearances. The takeaway from all this is that the 1849 proof quarter is more rare than those of 1845-48.

A single die pair was used for the known specimens, and the reverse die was once again that seen for the previous three dates.
