Description & Analysis

Proof quarter dollars dated 1850 are exceedingly rare, even more so than the elusive 1849 issue. Two examples are confirmed, with a third possible.

Larry Briggs identified a single die pair, his 3-C, for this issue, though he did not have any commentary on the reverse. Blowing up the photos included in Coin Explorer, it's evident that the same reverse used for 1846-49 was again employed with the 1850 issue.
