Estimated grade. Sold by David Akers Numsimatics, May '98.
Proof 1845 Silver Dollars are very rare, with perhaps just over a dozen known. Most examples are of average quality, often with hairlines and other signs of improper handling. However, a couple of high-quality examples exist, most notably the NGC PR67 from the Newcomer, Boyd, Pittman, and Kaufman collections that sold in 2008 for a record $207,000 (it sold subsequently in 2013 for a much lower $141,000). At least one circulated Proof example exists of this date.
Two obverse dies were used to strike 1845 Proof Dollars; both varieties share the same reverse (which was first used in 1840).
